“Imagination Playground blocks are an incredible play system for unlocking children’s creative spirit. These modular, rectilinear parts are easy to stack, line up and move around. Children enjoy an endless variety of play patterns including construction, pretend play, role-playing and inventing their own games. Most importantly, they are deeply engaged, active and have hours of fun!” (We are expecting for our center to be ready by the end of January)
Outdoor Music Center
In our Outdoor Music Center, First Steps students are free to use various instruments to express their emotions and creativity. This center allows students an opportunity to explore various sounds using traditional instruments and objects they find around them that create unique notes and noises. The students use and share various culturally diverse instruments to create musical harmonies together!
Our Monster Mural is a life sized washable coloring page! Students are able to use their imagination to enhance their creativity and fine motor skills at this center. They can color using markers and paint to create a fun Farm Scene.
Water Play Center
First Steps takes full advantage of the beautiful weather in Los Angeles and creates opportunities for students to be outdoors as often as possible. Our outdoor water center gives our students the ability to learn through play. Being one of the basic materials for purposeful play, water allows children the chance to conduct their own experiments. Students are able to experiment with weights of objects to see whether they float or sink. Students enhance their fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, and even their balance simply by playing with water!
