From the Director:
Our curriculum is based on High/Scope, an "active learning", and constructivism educational approach. Active learning means students have direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas. Children's interests and choices are at the heart of High/Scope programs. They construct their own knowledge through interactions with the world and the people around them. Children take the first step in the learning process by making choices and following through on their plans and decisions. Teachers, caregivers, and parents offer physical, emotional, and intellectual support. In active learning settings, adults expand children's thinking with diverse materials and nurturing interactions. Activities include a component of "plan / do / review" in various centers (dramatic play, computer, art, construction, math/science), interactive storytelling, songs, games, and small group activities (math, language and crafts). These are well balanced for group and free play, and consist of learning activities that will help your child develop his/her emotional, physical, intellectual and social skills.
