Research has consistently revealed that preschool age children most effectively learn through play.  A play-based curriculum provides children with essential skills that they will utilize not only during educational experiences, but throughout their entire lives.  Central Kentucky Head Start fully supports this preschool educational research and our classrooms are established in a manner that best facilitates play-based learning. Specifically speaking, our classrooms are organized into individual centers. Each center is designed with the intent for achieving the highest level of thinking and learning possible.  Examples of the types of centers that are applied and utilized in each classroom include; Dramatic Play, Blocks, Math, Science, Manipulatives, Art, Writing, Reading, Music, and Technology.
