Dear Lords & Ladies CDC Families,

The use of open-ended materials is an important component of our centers curriculum.  In addition to offering endless opportunity for complex thinking, inventing, communication and collaboration in the classrooms; collecting these materials allows us to authentically reflect the lives of our Lords & Ladies families.  Below is a list of some of the many possible materials you may already have in your homes that could now be repurposed, but do not feel that you have to stick to just this list.  Have fun with your child and be creative.

We have a collection site set up in the front of the center and would greatly appreciate your donations to start immediately and continue as you gather and find more materials.  Thank you for your help with this project.

Sincerely,

Lords & Ladies CDC Staff
