Social and Emotional Development
This area of learning focuses on activities for children that encourage them to develop self-confidence and self-awareness, manage their feelings and behavior and form deep relationships with their teachers and peers.
Math and Cognition
The environment, daily routines and everyday activities allow children to begin developing mathematical awareness at an early age. Our programs and environment enable children to explore and discuss shapes, size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money, as well as, count, compare, relate, identify patterns and problem solve.
Language and Literacy
The foundation for literacy begins with oral language. We provide language oriented activities to build strong grounds for language acquisition. As the children develop their language skills, they will be introduced to activities that will further develop their early literacy skills (reading and writing).
Our programs strongly emphasize the importance of creativity and the imagination. The environment encourages children to explore and experiment with music and dance and a variety of art materials ranging in media, color, design and texture. In all areas of learning, children are encouraged to think in original ways helping to develop their problem solving and critical thinking skills.
Our school is fully equipped with resources that allow children to run, skip, jump, climb, balance and throw, catch, hit and kick a ball (gross motor skills). Children develop their fine motor skills through activities such as: using utensils, writing, drawing, coloring, painting, building with blocks and manipulating clay. Children are reminded about the importance of healthy habits and keeping fit.
Our curriculum highlights and acknowledges the importance of diversity. In all areas of learning, children are encouraged to relate their experiences at school to their knowledge and understanding of their culture in regards to language, religion, traditions, food, etc. Children are taught to acknowledge, recognize, and respect difference.
