From the Director:
We provide an individualized curriculum that meets the needs of the specific children in the group. There is a strong emphasis on self care, increasingly independent functioning, and the internalization of controls. We help children put their feelings into words, use their own good thinking, and make choices based on what will make them feel good about themselves. We build language and writing skills into all aspects of the curriculum and use a lot of teacher and children made books. We teach numbers and math using concrete materials, allowing the children to discover math concepts as they explore the wide variety of manipulatives provided. An "emergent curriculum" approach is used for social studies, science, and art.
