Our curriculum is theme based where the children learn through enriched play.
The Circle Time activities promote a sense of wonder and curiosity as the children explore the world around them. Included in these activities are games, group projects and finger plays. Circle Time enhances cognitive skills, social and emotional development, fine and gross motor skills, language development, listening and thinking skills, creative thinking, self awareness, independence, mathematical concepts, science experiments, problem solving , and learning through the five senses.
Art Activities allow children to experience various materials. When implementing these activities, we emphasize the process rather than the product. Manipulating and exploring are much more important than final products. Experiencing Art Activities reinforces fine motor skills, imagination, creativity, self-expression, understanding of cause-and-effect, positive self-esteem, and hand-eye coordination.
Preparing and tasting yummy treats contributes to the exploration of new and different foods and gives children hands-on experiences. Cooking Activities are an opportunity for children to work on mastering cooperation, taking turns, following directions, self-help skills, independence, understanding of cause-and-effect, measuring, pouring and mixing.
During story time we use books, felt board stories, puppets, CDs and cassettes to accompany each weekly theme. These are all wonderful tools used to stimulate discussions. Story time allows children to grow in language development, listening and visual skills.
