Curriculum is the heart and soul of any learning program. It’s defined as all the experiences, activities, and interactions that foster children’s learning and development. Curriculum includes the nurturing relationships between teachers and children, the learning environment and activities, daily schedule, children’s skills assessments, and our partnership with families.

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
We believe that children learn best through play and that childhood should not be rushed. Children need the time and space to develop in their own unique way at their own pace. Because research tells us play enhances all areas of development in young children, play-centered learning is the basis of our curriculum.
BALANCED LEARNING ACTIVITIES
We believe children need balance. Children learn in many different ways, so learning activities throughout our program are a balance of structure and flexibility, individual, small-group and large-group experiences, child-initiated and teacher-led, quiet and active periods, and multi-sensory approaches. Each program is designed to encourage children to build upon learned skills and previous learning and experiences, with opportunities to reflect, revisit and connect.
