Our curriculum encourages children to be actively involved in the learning process, to experience a wide variety of activities appropriate to their age and rate of development and to pursue their own interests through learning centers in each classroom.
Learning centers provide the opportunity for the classroom teacher to individualize lesson plans to meet the needs of each child and encourage children to take responsibility for their own learning and discovery. For example, a science center may include autumn leaves, crayons, and paper for making leaf rubbings to show different shapes and patterns in nature. Our learning centers are grouped around several themes including language arts, mathematics, social living, science awareness, health and safety, motor development, fine arts, music, and cooking. Hands-on activity is encouraged for we believe children learn best through play.
Our daily schedule balances indoor and outdoor playtime, quiet time and active time, individual and group activities, and child initiated and teacher directed programs.
