Toddler and Infant Field Trip

October 29th, 2013 by twilliams

Children learn best in an environment which allows them to explore and discover their world through play. For this reason, WAPECEP  infant and toddlers participated in a field trip to Jumping Jack Mississippi, located in the Metro Center Mall. WE love the idea that our children can learn so much doing what they love best-playing!
