Toddler Classroom No. 12

Educational Specialist: Carolyn McLean


Associate Teachers: Angela Caviness, Dwylett Cook

Room 12 is an inclusive preschool classroom with 13 children and three staff members. Our children are ages two and three years old. Using the NC Foundations for early learning as a guide, our learning environment is full of educational, hands-on activities and play opportunities that foster growth and development. We also use Creative Curriculum for Preschool. This curriculum is designed to foster development of the whole child through teacher-led, small and large group activities centered around 11 interest areas (blocks, dramatic play, toys and games, art, library, discovery, sand and water, music and movement, cooking, computers, and outdoors).

Please visit our Parents tab for Resources, menus, and other important information on our website for school-wide events. For enrollment information, please contact Allie Emond at or 692-3323.

We welcome the month of January by continuing to embrace the changing of the season by welcoming winter (and hoping for snow) and celebrating the New Year. The children in room 12 continue to enjoy our weekly nature walks and watching the vegetables & herbs grow in the toddler garden. The children will continue to learn about the science of ‘’winter’’ by observing the natural environmental wonders. Many of our classroom activities will include winter arts & crafts, arctic animals, snowflakes and snowmen that will be included also in our literacy, songs, and small group activities. We will also be doing many science experiments related to the changing temperatures and environmental changes.
As part of our educational learning; we take the children outside daily. Please send appropriate attire (Hat, Gloves and Coat) for outdoor activities & play, as the temperature outside is cold at 9:30 in the morning.
Please browse other features from the Sandhills Children’s Center website for upcoming school events, photos and other important reminders. Thanks again for your continued support to all of the children!!
As you are cleaning out your child’s toy box; we welcome all donations of gently used toys for the classroom and playground. Thank you
