Curriculum

Through planning appropriate activities and guidance by the teachers, the children experience success which is important in self-concept formation. Children are encouraged to make choices among the various learning centers and to develop problem-solving skills as they participate in a variety of tasks and as they work with other children. With the guidance of caring adults, children will develop appropriate behavior patterns. The curriculum includes stories, games, songs, rhymes, manipulatives, art, outdoor play and other creative activities.

Our staff works with parents for the optimal development of the child and family, respecting family values and individuality. Frequent communication between parents and staff and a variety of parent involvement opportunities are additional features to our program.
