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:
Social
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-esteem, and negotiating skills necessary for a lifetime of healthy relationships.
Emotional
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.
Physical
We focus on the physical health and well-being of your child so he grows up safe and strong. Motor-skill development, coordination, mobility, and exercise all help ensure your growing child has a healthy body for a lifetime.
Intellectual
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-appropriate cognitive activities. Reading, writing, and math are important and children learn by experiencing the world around them.

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 Pre-K kids will continue their program focused on the entire learning milestone to get them ready for kindergarten.
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-K classroom setting.
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.
Here are some important learning milestones that we are going to focus on:
Alphabet knowledge;
