Information on our Curriculum

Curriculum and Age Group Program

The philosphy behind our curriculum is that young children learn best by doing. Learning isn’t just repeating what someone else says: it requires active thinking and experimenting, to find out how things work, and to learn fist hand about the world we live in.

In their early years, children explore the world around them by using all their senses (touching, tasting, listening, smelling, and looking).

In using real material such as blocks and trying out their ideas, children learn about sizes, shapes and colors and they notice relationships between things. In time, they learn to use one object to stand for another; this is the beginning of symbolic thinking. (Pretending a stick is an airplane or a block a hamburger).

Play provides the foundation for academic or “school” learning. It is the preparation children need before thy learn highly abstract symbols such as letters (which are symbols for sounds) and numbers (which are symbols for number concepts). Play enables us to achieve the key goals of our early children curriculum Play is the work of young children

GOALS OF THE CIRRICULUM

  • To help children develop a sense of trust and belonging.
  • To help children feel safe and encouraged them to explore not only materials but also their relationships with peers and adults.
  • We want them to feel important and valued when others listen to them, seek out their ideas and allow them to express themselves.
  • To help children become confident learners by letting them try out their own ideas and experience success by helping them acquire learning skills such as the ability to solve problems, ask questions and use words to describe their ideas, observations and feelings.

Satisfying the needs of the children and their families is only one of our center’s primary goals. Through developing and maintaining warm and cooperative relationships between the center and home, children are provided with a more stable, secure and positive experience.
