Preschool Classroom Centers are areas within a classroom where children learn about specific subjects through playing and engaging in activities focused in a cognitive area. These areas create an intellectually engaging, responsive environment to promote each child’s learning and development through play. (NAEYC 1997, 11).
Play is an active form of learning that involves the whole self through child-initiated exploration and discovery. Playing in a classroom center environment also helps children to develop certain strategy-based skills such as making decisions, carrying out plans, cooperating and sharing with others and problem-solving.
Center Time allows children to be self-disciplined by exploring in their own way, intentionally directing their learning independently. Center Time encourages self-motivation as children concentrate on things that interest them intensely. These social-emotional skills are now seen as critical for success in school.
