We use a developmentally appropriate play-based curriculum that is uniquely ours. It is time tested, research based and is ever evolving to meet our children’s needs and to align with emerging education research. We use a balance of structured and child-centered approaches that focus on critical thinking and hands on learning. Emphasis is also on fostering both emotional and spiritual growth.
Our primary goal is to help every child develop the skills necessary for success in life: cognitive, language, gross and fine motor, and social. Basic group social skills – sharing, cooperation, concern for others and our world, personal responsibility, and confidence – are emphasized from the first day of school at every level.
The 2 year and 3 year classes use an integrated unit based curriculum that emphasizes early literacy and number awareness as well developing an awareness and appreciation of our world. Scholastic’s My Big World introduces science and social studies concepts. Fine motor skills are developed through art and manipulatives. Learning is center based.
The 4 year and Kindergarten classes utilize the SRA Open Court Imagine It! reading curriculum, Math Their Way, Scholastic's Let’s Find Out and Handwriting Without Tears.
