Curriculum

growth chart

 

The Early Childhood Education Program includes a variety of curriculums targeting all academic areas.
Our curriculum includes a variety of themes based upon topical units (seasons, family, animals, etc.) The curriculum is presented throughout the day at circle time, center-based activities, and structured play.

Growing with Mathematics:

This fun, hands-on program develops early mathematical language and skills through very purposeful activities targeting age-appropriate learning.

Macmillan/McGraw-Hill Science:

This program helps children begin to acquire the all-important science inquiry skills that they will use throughout their lives as they observe, measure, compare, classify, make models, communicate, infer, put things in order, predict, investigate, and draw conclusions.

Foundations:

A systematic, sequential, and multi-sensory method of teaching reading and writing skills. Key components targeted at preschool are phonological awareness, sound mastery and phonics.

Braidy, the Story Braid:

Braidy, the Story Braid is a tool used to help children retell and develop a story. Braidy is composed of parts (icons) that will help students remember the important elements of a story, such as character and setting. These skills are essential for learning how to retell a story and ultimately writing the story.

Second Step:

A social skills curriculum teaching children how to identify feelings, respond empathetically to others, and to develop independent problem-solving strategies for social conflicts.

Handwriting Without Tears:

A complete handwriting curriculum which introduces school readiness activities for young children of all ability levels. The children have fun as they develop handwriting skills through music, building, coloring and multi-sensory activities.

Technology:

Computers, iPads and Eno Interactive White Boards are in each classroom. Various websites, programs and applications supplement all areas of development.

Parental Involvement:

We encourage parents to share information and experiences about their child at home.
