Children learn through being actively engaged in their environment where new and varied hands-on experiences cause them to stop and question what they know. Our curriculum includes:
  • Circle Time - includes calendars, sharing time, intro to letters, letter sounds, numbers & problem solving
  • Group Games - promote problem solving & moral development as children try to apply the rules to conflicts that arise during play 
  • Gym/Outside Play - promotes physical  development
  • Shared Family Style Meals - encourage manners, discussion about healthy eating and interaction
  • Small Group Activities - where children are given time to explore new skills 

Certified teachers guide large and small group interaction as well as encourage children to explore independently.  Teachers observe, offer support, and gauge skill levels to determine when to introduce new experiences.
