Preschool Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to promote a child's social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development.

Specific curriculum goals include:

  • Developing the child's ability to share and work cooperatively with others.

  • Increasing the child's ability to follow directions and to listen in a sustained manner.

  • Building positive self-esteem.

  • Providing learning at the child's individual level.

  • Helping the child find acceptable outlets for emotions.

  • Building positive feelings about school.

  • ​Fostering a love of learning.

Classroom routine is play-based, exploration-focused, and carefully balanced to provide for individual differences and needs and to foster a love of learning within each student.
