"Figure It Out!"

Logical RoomLittle bean counters adjust their green visors and gather at a kidney bean-shaped table, adding, subtracting and counting the room's collections. The maze wall has moveable slats so children can arrange and rearrange pathways for their rolling balls. The gear wall calls for children to arrange their gears, one beside the other, and turn the crank that rotates them all.

The workstations contain tangrams, mosaics and fractions for quiet problem-solving. The bookshelf contains books such as Knots on a Counting Rope, One, Two, Buckle My Shoe and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. A magnetic number wall invites children to do their math with giant numbers and the clock display tells the time in our Sister Cities around the world.
