Our curriculum is organized around themes, allowing us to present curriculum in
an integrated format. The thematic approach includes activities in art, dramatic
play, language arts, math, music, science, and language. Unit topics allow for
ingenuity and creativity, while encouraging the adaptation of the curriculum to the
needs of your child. We believe that every unit will capitalize on your child's
interests as they learn about themselves and their environment.
Each day begins with "Circle Time," where your child will learn the necessary skills
such as communication proficiency, emotional literacy, and conflict resolution.
Circle time is an effective way of facilitating dialogue between the children and their teachers. Our group discussions will include thematic Concepts, Language development, and an introduction to "The letter of the week."
Center time makes up a majority of the preschool day. Children will work in small groups to promote social interaction with peers and teachers, self-regulation of behavior, language development, and time management. Our center time includes:
Our hands-on exploration of life and physical science will encourage children to explore the world around them by taking a "closer look." Science lessons will use open-ended questions, books and activities to further early language skills and cognitive development.
Character Education is an extension of our curriculum that promotes core
values while building a strong foundation that enhances your child's ability to
make good choices. Children will learn about emotions, feeling and positive
character traits such as integrity, honesty, and manners.
Music is a natural and important part of your child's growth and development.
Successful experiences in music help all children bong emotionally and
intellectually with others through their creative expression in song, rhythmic
movement, listening and response to visual and verbal representations of
sound. Our musical experiences are integrated throughout your child's daily
routine and play.
