Curriculum

 

Program Goals

• Our preschool curriculum is based on current research and sound educational theories of early childhood learning and development.

• We will provide a wide range of hands-on, interactive materials allowing children to experiment and explore their surroundings.

• Our preschool activities and projects are aligned with specific Learning Goals and Objectives.

Toddler/Preschool Curriculum:

1. Emphasizes safety. We choose only the activities that are appropriate for the children in their group.

2. Provides consistency and a predictable routine, which is comforting to children. Children are relaxed and ready to learn when they can anticipate what is happening next. As children move through developmental milestones they will need to practice skills at which they are successful. The variety of skill levels will vary greatly with any group of children, even those that are all the same chronological age.

3. Includes open - ended activities and materials that build a learning community in our program. When mate­rials can be used in a variety of ways, more children benefit. Activities that allow for multi-ages and multi-skill levels will include more children. Older, or children with advanced skills will be models for younger children or those who haven’t yet attained the skill. Activities in our curriculum encourage children to work together, share, and be successful at their individual skill level.

4. Encourages participation in two and three dimensional art, music, dramatic play, and creative movement. We provide the activities and many of the materials for teachers to expand learning and experiences around a theme or topic.

5. Promotes multi-sensory experiences. Many opportunities are included in our activities that allow children to learn through touch, smell, taste, vision, and hearing. We know that children learn most when information is provided through all the senses.

       6. Invites exploration and discovery. Our kits for fine motor and creative art include open - ended questions to promote thinking and problem solving. Teachers who model curiosity and wonder will help children reach new levels of development and deeper understanding of concepts.
