The community gallery will be a child-sized town, complete with shops/buildings that represent Lake County. Children will bring this Lake County community to life through role play. The importance of community workers and the services they provide will be explored through open-ended play. One highlight of this area will be the Farmer’s Market which will replicate a Lake County farm stand. The children will be able to harvest a mini-crop, load a food pyramid truck, stock shelves with a variety of realistic produce, shop and more. Through the Farmer’s Market, children will sort/classify and weigh while learning about food groups/nutrition. This area will also encourage cooperative group play; where children can safely share materials and respect the rights of others.
We currently have two facade sponsors:
