Curriculum

We always considers the whole child. Activities that stimulate physical, social, emotional, intellectual and creative development are offered in structured and unstructured times. The teachers provide a balance of large group, small group and individual activities in language, literacy, number, art, block building, fine motor, large motor, sensory, dramatic play and science. Teachers know the children well and introduce new materials to further exploration and learning. Stories, song, music and dance are integrated into the curriculum. We believe that thoughtful attention to children's ideas and feelings is central to curriculum. Learning the social skills of sharing, cooperating and negotiating is done through teacher modeling and explanation. We believe that when children feel respected and happy, they learn best what they are ready to learn.
