The Heffalump Room

The Heffalump Room is a dynamic room focusing on hands-on, active learning. We serve children ages 2 ½ to 3 ½, during a most exciting stage in their development! In the Heffalump Room we have a maximum of 14 children with at least 2 teachers.  Teacher Rozzette is the lead teacher, who is in the classroom 9:30 - 6 each day.  Teacher Allison who opens our room each day is in the classroom daily from 7:00 to 3:15.  Teacher Korey joins our classroom for the mornings, and Teacher Tara is with us in the afternoon from 11:30 - 5:30.  We enjoy spending time exploring the University of Washington campus, playing at local parks, experimenting with paints, glue and other various art media, singing and dancing, stories and  so much more!!
