At First Congregational preschoolers focus on fun, while benefitting from the “hidden” advantages of play-based learning. Children experience a friendly, social atmosphere, where their feeling of self-respect and self-confidence is developed, as well as respect and consideration for others.
FCC uses the Connecticut Preschool Curriculum Framework as a guide in designing an adaptable and enriching program. This includes opportunities for personal, social, physical, cognitive and aesthetic development and creative expression.
Teachers plan the curriculum knowing what they need and want to accomplish, while keeping the teaching plan and environment flexible in order to account for (and incorporate) the children’s interests.
Other curriculum highlights include: Art, Movement, Nature, and Music
