Curriculum

Our preschool’s curriculum is based on the principle that children learn best by doing. Our goal is to foster independent learning in a well-organized environment. Sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills are introduced through a variety of materials and activities centered around appropriate themes, which are both child-centered and teacher-directed. Work is planned with the emphasis on the process rather than the product, fostering a sense of accomplishment and pride.

Based on the theory that children learn through play and their surroundings, the teachers plan their classrooms carefully, encouraging active involvement, meaningful experimentation and reinforcement through repetition. Schedules are designed to balance structure and free choices, as well as active and quiet time.

Recognizing that children grow in predictable stages, we treat each child as an individual, working from the level each child has attained and moving forward a step at a time. We teach a love of learning by allowing children to experience their own stage of development and helping them to feel success without pressure.
