Early Education Curriculum
We structure our early childhood education curriculum around four key elements of development to ensure the growth of the whole child. They are:
Your child will communicate with others verbally and nonverbally to engage the world around them. Your child will make new friends and gain the confidence, self-
Children will enjoy a safe, nurturing “home away from home” where they can learn to express themselves and understand their own unique identities. Your child will gain the comfort and confidence to forge trusting relationships, value their individuality, and have fun just being himself.
We focus on the physical health and well-
Our early education programs help build brain power by supporting the development of judgment, perception, memory, reasoning, critical thinking, and language through a series of age-
Here are some important learning milestones that we are going to focus on:
We will keep offering and doing all the other activities we have in our program such as; circle time, projects, music class, dance and creative movement classes.
As you know your child learns through play and creative activity. We are happy with the progress that each child has achieved by every age group but we believe they can always go above and beyond and learn more.
The Preschool kids (the younger ones) will also have the opportunity to spend some time in the classroom setting and getting them more adaptable to sitting longer, (since we know they can’t concentrate that much) but this will help teach them this process. They will start having some homework appropriate for their ages. We also will have a weekly book and poem for each child to work on in school and at home and along with all the other subjects to help them learn and grow and get prepared for the Pre-
New for the next School Year is addition of standardized study books. Each child will get a personal book for each study subject. The books are age appropriate and will play an important role in overall educational process. Active parents participation is expected in homework preparation. We do understand that our students are the youngest ones, so we shall approach this learning process gently without overwhelming routine.
Having your child eat his oatmeal on his own lets him sharpen his fine motor skills, gives him control over the foods he puts in his mouth and teaches him to regulate his appetite, says child psychologist Heather Wittenberg, Psy.D. You should still supervise him, and step in if he gets discouraged. It’s fine to set limits: If you have to scrub the walls after every meal, you may want to let him self-feed only one meal a day. You can also have him practice eating dry foods by himself and give him a hand with sticky, drippy ones. End the session when he stops eating and starts tossing food.
Your toddler loves your attention, but she needs time on her own too. “If you do everything with her, she won’t learn to see what she can do for herself,” points out Kate Eshleman, Psy.D., a pediatric psychologist at Cleveland Clinic Children’s. Instead of helping her build a block tower, watch her do it. So what if her project tumbles and she starts crying? Frustration and failure are normal parts of growth, and your child needs to figure out how to manage them, says Dr. Eshleman. If she asks for assistance with the shape sorter, you might say, “Let me see you do it. If you have trouble, I’ll help.” Encouraging your child to master it by herself will boost her sense of competence and inspire her to try other things on her own.
Finger-painting and squishing Play-Doh are great for advancing your child’s cognitive and motor skills. Using different mediums (such as crayons, shaving cream, and paint) and tools (brushes, paste, and glitter) fosters creativity and coordination. Art projects can even improve writing skills later on since they help strengthen a toddler’s hand muscles, notes Dr. Eshleman. Let your kid take the lead on projects, deciding which colors to use and shapes to make. When she shows you an abstract scribble, ask what it is rather than labeling the drawing yourself. If you prefer not to turn your kitchen into a splattered art studio, put down newspaper before you start a project, or set up a station in the yard or the basement.
It’s never too early to introduce the idea that your child is a valued member of the family who has something to contribute. A great way to demonstrate this is to enlist his assistance with simple tasks, such as putting toys away in bins (singing the “Clean Up” song will motivate him), hanging his coat on a hook at his level, and bringing his empty bowl to the kitchen. Don’t expect your little helper to save you any time. Your goal is to boost his sense of responsibility and accomplishment, says Dr. Wittenberg.
Storytelling, puppetry, and a substantial children's library are some of the ways we make learning language-based skills inspiring and fun.
Our philosophy is that children at this particular age learn best through play. We use books and other materials to teach colors, shapes, counting, sorting and letter and number recognition. We also cover these curriculum areas through circle time and music activities. We continually discuss color, form, texture and learning about our world through art activities, science, cooking, games, puzzles and building toys both large and small. Ours is a language-rich environment that promotes the acquisition and use of language to express needs, build relationships, and learn to work and play cooperatively
