The Early Childhood Community Gives Back: Exchange Center Makeover Project
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n196 p82-83 Nov-Dec 2010
The excitement, joy, and big smiles still permeate Jewel's Learning Center since the surprise announcement in June. Over the past several months the Makeover partners have been busy working with Miss Charlotte, Miss Jewel, and staff to create design plans necessary for final approval. Charlotte, with the help of Collaborative for Children and Innovations in Early Childhood Education, spent several weeks in August visiting child care centers to explore and learn about other centers' programs. On September 6-8, the Makeover partners met once again with Charlotte at Jewel's Learning Center. Both interior classroom programs and nature outdoor playscape were discussed. With a collaborative effort, the team made great progress. From these meetings a master plan and a time-line were created. Construction will begin in late October for the nature playscape. With paint samples on the walls, new flooring selection down, and the final indoor and outdoor plans soon to be reviewed, the implementation phase is about to begin!
