Family Resource Center
Florida Gulf Coast University
10501 FGCU Blvd S.
Ft. Myers, FL. 33965
Program Design: The Center is conveniently located on the FGCU campus in a free standing building designed to support safe, nurturing and intellectually stimulating care. In this cozy setting children thrive and develop at their own pace nurtured by a highly professional staff. Both the indoor and outdoor environments are carefully planned to promote the children’s engagement in a wide variety of interesting activities. The program maintains four classrooms with a total enrollment of 55 children. The Center is a Gold Seal Program licensed by the state of Florida, maintains accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and is a VPK provider (Voluntary Pre Kindergarten).
Curriculum: Language arts, dramatic play, music, art, science, and large and small muscle activities are woven into the total experience of the child. The Center views development as a continuum in which young children are helped to meet increasingly greater challenges cognitively, socially, emotionally and physically. The daily schedule reflects this integrated approach. Additional literacy curriculum for preschool aged children is provided by the use of the Early Literacy and Learning Model (ELLM).
