Bright colors and smiling faces decorated the Corozal Central Park today as teachers, parents and preschoolers conducted their annual expo which forms part of the ongoing activities for stimulation month.

With live animals, presentations and singing sessions, the audience was served a plate filled with fun activities. In commemoration of the celebration, over 100 preschoolers found themselves out of their usual classrooms as the Central Park automatically became their new study hall for the morning.

Maria Correa, Coordinator of the Early Childhood Education, told us that the main idea of today’s event was not only to highlight the talent of these young minds, but also to share and educate children on other styles of learning.

“The concept of it is to be out here to form one big pre-school, what is the objective and how is this going to benefit the other children in the learning process?”

Maria Correa - coordinator of the Early Childhood Education

“Is to have the parents and children coming here so that they get to now exactly what takes place in a pre-school on a daily basis, all the activities that the children need to learn through the pre-school and all the themes and topic and so on.”

According to Correa, preschools must set up an environment that allows children to play and learn at the same time, which is made possible through learning areas, a space in the classroom that is used for children to discover and learn through direct experiences.
