Our Curriculum

We based our curriculum on the understanding that young children learn best through play, which involves them inactively constructing their own knowledge. We teach academics in a traditional way: children are receiving school readiness skills through becoming familiar with Kindergarten objectives. Also we prepare children for later success in school and in life. We believe that what children need to learn in the early years can be accomplished through play, providing they have appropriate guidance from nurturing and responsive care providers.

Activities may be drawn from Home Preschool Program or the teachers may create their own activities--often in direct response to the children's interests in a particular topic or theme. For example, cooking activities are extremely popular and these can be done appropriately with all but the very youngest. A skilled teacher can successfully embed the teaching of language, math, science, or emergent literacy skills within the context of just about any cooking activity.

We further believe that facilitating children's social and emotional development is an important component of our curriculum. After all, the ability to understand and control one's own emotions, to develop meaningful relationships with others, to persist in the face of frustration or disappointment, and to conform to social expectations are as critical as any pre-academic skills are to later school success. These skills are taught through the course of everyday routines, as opportunities arise, by sensitive, supportive, and skilled care providers.  

Our Program provides a warm and stimulating atmosphere to play, investigate, explore, and to make decisions.  Carefully planned learning activities appropriate to children's age and development, such as painting, block building, dress-up, reading stories, and active outdoor play. 

Our daily activities include language development, literacy, math, and science components, a variety of indoor and outdoor activities that are appropriate to the ages and interests of the children

 We provide an environment to develop an appreciation for Education.
