Children learn by doing. They learn through play, experimentation, exploration, and testing. Learning should be a joyful, natural experience. We have chosen a curriculum based on the developmental needs of the children each the room and to foster individual growth through opportunities for exploration. 90% of brain growth occurs from zero to 5 years old. Each class’s lesson plans and your child’s class flexible schedule are posted on the parent’s board in your child’s room. We incorporate current trends in Early Childhood and School Age Education and then structure this curriculum to meet the needs of the majority of the children in the group. Our curriculum, although it vary depending on age, is guided by the following underlying principals:
⦁ Children learn through dynamic investigation
⦁ Children instigate their own learning
⦁ Learning comes from open-ended experiences
⦁ Adults are facilitators of children’s learning
