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!
