What We Do

The University of New Mexico Family Development Program’s Wemagination Resource Center provides high quality recycled materials in support of understanding the essential role of play for children’s optimal learning and development. The WE (as it is affectionately called) features a showroom and warehouse full of safe, recycled items, often factory extras that would have otherwise ended up in landfills. Varying from the one-of-a-kind to the ordinary, the collection includes foam punch-outs, caps from perfume bottles, beads, paper, and an array of other items in every imaginable color and shape, perfect for inspiring any child (or adult) to play. The WE Resource Center also adds value to the Family Development Program’s distinct approach for training— through providing needed resources for teachers and families to actively engage young children as creative young learners.
