We support and nurture the growth of each individual child in all areas of development: social, emotional, physical, cognitive and creative. We respect and support rituals, routines and home language of our families in support your children’s growth. These areas are very important to the development of the whole child.
We want each child’s experience to be a positive one, filled with activities that are both challenging and rewarding. We will provide and maintain a classroom setting that is emotionally secure, supportive and planned for independence. Our program is aimed at teaching the child “how” to think rather than “what” to think and is more concerned with “forming” the mind rather than with “filling” the mind.
Our curriculum offers experiences that supports and nurtures the growth of each individual child in all areas of development: social, emotional, physical, cognitive and creative. We utilize a hands-on approach to learning through risk taking and investigating in a safe and supportive environment. Individual differences, readiness levels and learning styles among our students are recognized and appreciated by our experienced faculty. Gross and fine motor skills, language development, pre-reading, pre-writing and pre-math skills, the creative arts and social and emotional growth are primary concerns of our program. Curriculum is developed and implemented in consideration with the following researchers and theorists in the field of early childhood education. Piaget; learning opportunities are based on past learning/experiences and should be concrete and hands on. Vygotsky; teacher is the model/facilitator in the process of a child learning a new skill and learning happens through social interactions (PLAY). Erikson; learning opportunities should support the development of self-image.
