“The curriculum here is very good and my daughter has grown into an intelligent, curious child.”

Curriculum

The most important goals of our early childhood curriculum is to:

  • Help children become enthusiastic learners. 

  • Encourage children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try their ideas and to think their own thoughts. 

  • Help children become independent, self-confident and inquisitive learners. 

  • Inspire kids through free playtime to help build creativity and joy.

  • Encourage them to learn at their own pace and in the ways that are best for them at each stage of development.   

  • Support good habits and attitudes, particularly a positive sense of self, which will make a difference throughout their lives.

 

Everything we do, including the activities we plan, the environment, the toys and materials, the daily schedule, and our interaction with the children, are all designed to accomplish the goals of our curriculum. The Creative Curriculum® by Teaching Strategies© is our framework for planning and implementing a developmentally appropriate program for your child.
