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.
