Curriculum & Schedules


It is the consensus of early childhood professionals that all learning experiences provide self-esteem. The curriculum was developed to ensure that each child is able to attain the curricular goals successfully. Individualized lesson planning is provided with the children's individual needs in mind. The following goals are as follows:
  • To provide a safe physical environment
  • To provide opportunities to facilitate appropriate language development, social manners and socially acceptable language.
  • To provide for appropriate social and emotional development.
  • To provide experiences in fine and gross motor development.
  • To recognize different learning modalities.
  • To provide a multi-cultural, anti-bias curriculum.
  • To provide developmentally appropriate learning centers and materials.
