Curriculum and Philosophy

Our Philosophy:

Children learn best through their hands-on experiences, so our philosophy is to teach the whole child by engaging them in rich experiences and investigations to help build their confidence, promote discovery, and to create critical thinking skills. Play is an essential foundation for school learning and is an important building block before learning and can be defined as the work of young children.

Curriculum Goals:

Intentional lessons and small and large group experiences will enable us to achieve the desired goals and outcomes to help children become enthusiastic and inquisitive learners. Our assessment program is tied directly to our curriculum, allowing us to use our daily observations to link our data for instant feedback, allowing us to be even more intentional in our planning of daily lessons and activities.
