TOYBOX Early Learning Center is a program established as a laboratory setting on high school campuses incorporating a full teaching curriculum. All lessons are objective driven, play-based, and designed using the Arizona Early Learning Standard.
We offer a full curriculum teaching all subjects each day including language and literacy, STEM (science, tools, engineering and math), social studies, art, music, and PE. Our goal is to prepare children for success in Kindergarten as well as their entire educational careers. We work hard to build a positive foundation for school success and a love for learning. The TOYBOX Early Learning Center provides the opportunity for children to develop social relationships with peers, gain a positive self-concept and foster an attitude of enthusiasm about school at an early age.
Children learn to think critically, solve problems creatively, and interact in group situations. Having the support of the high school students helps to maintain a low child to adult ratio, resulting in more one-on-one attention and learning. Being on a high school campus allows TOYBOX unique opportunities to participate in many activities such as trying out the instruments in orchestra, creating pottery with clay, participating in simple science experiments, making a creative snack with culinary, or visiting the animals in the agriculture lab.
