Our Curriculum

Our programs are play-based emphasizing an appropriate balance between child- and teacher-directed activities. Our theme-based curriculum focuses on the following developmental areas: cognitive skills, social, emotional, physical, creative, and language and skills. It is our goal to support children in achieving goals appropriate for their state of development. Children as young as toddlers will participate in large and small group activities as a part of the daily routine. Our staff is committed to planning and implementing a curriculum that is purposeful and goal-oriented.
