Our program offers a child-centered environment and curriculum that focuses on the social, emotional, physical and cognitive well-being of every child. Foundations for instruction include Piaget’s theory of play and Howard Gardener’s theory of multiple intelligences. Brain-based learning strategies are incorporated into lesson plans.
Play is the primary vehicle of learning for young children. Play allows the student to experiment, explore, and manipulate the environment while developing imagination and creativity. Young children construct knowledge based on their real-life experiences; they learn by doing.
Developmentally appropriate lessons are offered providing sensory-rich experiences in language arts, math, science, social studies, art, physical fitness, nutrition, music and movement. The majority of these learning experiences will be concrete rather than abstract providing the students with optimum opportunities to actively explore and gain knowledge in the content areas. Our curriculum and daily activities do not include the use of television or video.
