Our method of teaching is a “hands-on” approach because children, as most people, learn easiest when they are having fun and using their senses.
Our main educational goal is to foster a desire for learning within each child and enrich his/her self-esteem. Therefore, our teachers work closely with your children to ensure that each child is treated justly and has the same opportunities as other students to learn and play.
We present information through games and activities which involve the child. Your child may not necessarily bring home a paper or craft every day; please understand that does not mean “they did nothing” at daycare that day. What it means is that the child is a participant, not just an observer, and is involved in a variety of creative learning activities; some may not just involve paper.
The goals of our curriculum are multi-faceted. Our goals encourage children to be enthusiastic, self-confident, independent, well-mannered learners and we believe that play is the primary mode of learning. Our curriculum also respects individual learning styles and ever-changing interests. Throughout our curriculum we promote growth in all areas of development including, but not limited to social, emotional, cognitive and physical.
Our curriculum goals are achieved through integrated, theme-based activities and conversations with adults and children. Opportunities exist within the classroom for the child to engage in one-on-one activities with the teacher, small group and large group activities, solitary and independent play allowing for opportunities to experiment and explore. Whole group activities are for short periods of time and are suited to the age and ability of the children. Supervised free play and small groups help encourage the imaginations of our children.
