CURRICULUM / GOALS:

 

The goal of our early childhood curriculum is to help children to develop skills that will enable them to become independent, enthusiastic learners. We encourage children to be active and creative, eager to try out their ideas and think their own thoughts.

Our goal is to help young children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners. We encourage children to learn at their own pace in the ways that are best for them. We are helping them to develop a positive sense of themselves.

Our curriculum identifies goals in the following developmental areas:

  • Social: to help children feel comfortable in school, trust their school environment, make friends and feel they are active participants in a group. 
  • Emotional: to help children experience self-confidence, develop independence and self-control, and have a positive attitude about themselves and others.
  • Cognitive: to help children become confident leaders by letting them try out their ideas and experience success, and by helping them acquire learning skills such as the ability to solve problems, ask questions, and use words to describe their ideas, observations and feelings.
  • Physical: to help children increase their large and small muscle skills and feel confident about what their bodies can do. 

The activities we plan for children, the way we organize the environment, select materials, plan the daily schedule, and talk with children are all designed to accomplish the goals of the preschool curriculum.

KINDERMUSIK is a regular part of our program, which helps to reach the above goals through the use of music/movement.  A description of the KINDERMUSIK program can be found on the KINDERMUSIK website, www.kindermusik.com.  Tap dancing is also a regular part of our KINDERMISK time.


Spanish instruction is also a regular part of our curriculum.  This is done through a variety of songs, games and puppet activities.
