Our curriculum is based on the philosophy of The Creative Curriculum®. We believe that young children learn best by doing. Our curriculum is built on theories of development in young children, with the belief that all children learn through active exploration of their environment and that this plays a critical role in learning. The goal is to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners.
The curriculum identifies goals in all areas of development including Social/Emotional, Cognitive, Physical and Language. Planned activities for the children, organization of the environment, selection of toys and materials, and interaction with the children, are all designed to accomplish the goals and objectives of the curriculum and give your child a successful year in school.
Our curriculum integrates learning throughout the day in Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, The Arts, and Technology. Teachers offer a wide range of teaching strategies – from child-initiated learning to teacher-directed approaches – to best respond to children’s learning styles, strengths, and interests.
The teachers design the curriculum for their children using different interest areas including Dramatic Play, Discovery, Blocks, Outdoors, Table Toys, Cooking, Art, Music & Movement, Sand & Water, and Library.
The richer the environment, the more concrete opportunities there are for children to learn by interacting with materials and people. The teacher’s role is to encourage children to observe, to be active, to make choices, and to experiment. It is our goal to provide a loving, comfortable environment in which children can grow and advance through developmental stages at their own rate. We offer science and music enrichment programs at no extra cost to families.
