We utilize the Creative Curriculum for Preschool and Infant/ Toddlers Goals and Objectives to begin building a strong academic foundation for our students. Its curriculum framework is based on developmentally appropriate practices-stressing instruction and teaching in ways that match the way children develop and learn. The framework focuses on the following: How Children Develop and Learn, The Learning Environment, What Children Learn, The Teacher’s Role, The Family’s Role.
The curriculum framework is applied to eleven areas that can be found in each classroom:
Art-Blocks–Computers–Cooking-Discovery Center-Dramatic Play–Library-Music &Movement-Outdoor / Active Play-Sand & Water Play-Toys & Games
Our program is given in a math and literacy-rich environment and integrates social emotional skill development. Our teachers follow a very interactive curriculum that encourages independence and self-discovery. Thus, our students not only gain a strong academic foundation, but develop character and habits of mind they need to be successful in school and in life-independence, strategic planning, problem solving and critical thinking skills.
By the time our students graduate from our program, they have reached or exceeded the developmental milestones appropriate for their individual needs.
