Curriculum

 

 

Creative Curriculum is the primary curriculum that is used. However, we utilize a mixture of several different curriculum books in order to get the best individualized lessons for each child.

 

The philosophy behind Creative Curriculum is that young children learn best by doing.  Learning is not just repeating or mimicking what someone else says; it requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand about the world and community in which they live in.  Play provides the foundation of academic learning. It is the preparation children need before they learn highly abstract symbols such as letters (which are symbols for sounds) and numbers (which are symbols for number concepts). Play enables us to achieve the key goals of our early childhood curriculum.  Play is the framework of young children.  One important aspect of our curriculum is that it helps children become enthusiastic learners.  This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think independently.

 

As “Educators” we understand the importance for children to learn while they play.  Play is valued and facilitated both indoors and outdoors.
