A developmentally appropriate curriculum focuses on nurturing the whole child; social, emotional, cognitive, and physical needs. Using thoughtful observations of every child, learning experiences are developed by the teachers to meet every child's developmental needs and interests. Our curriculum balances emergent and child-initiated approaches to learning. Our goal is to create classroom environments in which children feel free to explore the materials, use them for experimentation, and discover ways to solve problems and create. These learning opportunities are facilitated by teachers through planned learning experiences, selection from a wide variety of interesting materials, and interactions that lead to higher order thinking.
Our curriculum reflects the CT Early Learning and Development Standards across eight domains of development. Additionally, we teach our children to be kind, safe, and responsible citizens of society where they will learn a foundation of making good choices. We support the development of essential dispositions for learning, problem solving, and academic progress. Our teachers are committed to providing learning experiences that will support each child in developing necessary skills that will ensure success in Kindergarten and beyond.
