We provide our three- and four-year-olds with a planned curriculum that is consistent with its goals for children and that promotes learning and development in each of the following areas:
Social-Emotional Development addresses formal and informal plans, as well as opportunities for fostering and developing children’s healthy social and emotional growth through the development of friendships, self-regulation skills, empathy, and the ability to resolve conflict in positive ways.
Language Development addresses program plans and materials for supporting children’s language development. The goals and objectives for language acquisition address both verbal and nonverbal communication and are rooted within ethnic and other community traditions.
Early Literacy addresses program plans and materials for supporting early literacy through reading, learning letters and sounds, writing, and immersion in a print-rich environment.
Early Mathematics address program plans and materials for supporting the acquisition of early mathematics, including numbers, operations, attributes, geometry, measurement, time, patterns, and vocabulary.
The Science area addresses program plans for opportunities and materials that support children’s scientific inquiry and knowledge through observation, the use of simple tools, representation of findings, and the use of scientific terminology and vocabulary.
Our preschool curriculum also includes teaching in Social Studies, Health and Safety, Creative Expression, and Appreciation for the Arts.
