We are committed to providing your child with the highest quality early childhood education and care in a nurturing environment. Our program is designed to encourage each child to reach their full potential and develop a love for learning through activities and experiences throughout their day.

Our Curriculum is based on theory and research. There are five basic components that comprise the curriculum. From these five categories, focus and planning can be aimed so that learning is best achieved for children birth through kindergarten.

  • How Children Develop and Learn describes the social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language development of children.
  • The Learning Environment offers a model for setting up the physical environment for routines and experiences in ways that address the developing abilities and interests of children.
  • What Children Learn shows the responsive relationship formed with each child, the daily interactions, and the materials & experiences offered become the building blocks for successful learning.
  • The Teacher’s Role describes the varied and interrelated roles of teachers who work with children.
  • The Family’s Role explores the benefits of working with families as partners in the care of their children.

We encourage children to observe, take things apart, build and see what they can find out. The more active children are in their work, the more they learn and remember. As children play, we watch how they use materials. We listen. We talk with them to find out what they are thinking and trying to do. We observe what they do and take note. Through those notes, activities are planned that interest them as well as meet the learning objectives.

Each week, our curriculum includes activities and experiences that allow our teachers to observe their students as they build skills related to their program’s goals. The teachers use their observations to assess the children’s progress over time and to adjust their teaching and activities that they are providing through the classroom. Teachers get together with families a couple times a year to discuss their child’s progress and developmental goals that teachers and parents come up with as a team.
