The most important goals of our Pre-K and Kindergarten Curriculum are for children to get along well with others and become enthusiastic learners.
We want children to become independent, self-confident, curious learners who can work well with others. We do this by creating purposeful and productive play experiences that help children grow in all areas.
Our curriculum identifies all areas of development.
*Social/Emotional - To help children develop independence, self-confidence, and self-control, follow rules and routines, make friends, and learn what it means to be part of a group.
*Physical - To increase children's large muscle skills-balancing, running, jumping, throwing and catching-and use the small muscles in their hands to do tasks like buttoning, stringing beads, cutting, drawing and writing.
*Cognitivie - To acquire thinking skills such as the ability to solve problems, to ask questions and to think logically-sorting, classifying, comparing, counting and making patterns-and to use materials and their imagination to show what they have learned.
*Language - To use words to communicate with others, listen to and participate in conversations with others, understand the purpose of print, recognize letters and words and begin writing for a purpose.
Through the daily activities we plan and the way we organize the classrooms, select toys and materials, plan the daily schedules and talk with the children, we seek to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and give your child a successful start in school.
