Curriculum

 

• curriculum in our Day Care Center is a developmentally appropriate program fulfilling the needs and appreciating the differences of individual children.

• Provides a balance of child initiated and teacher-focused activities; active and quiet activities; and group and individual activities

• Combines aspects of the Project Approach, theme-based curriculum to create a hands-on, active program where children interact with each other and materials, co-operating and collaborating.

• Builds upon what the children already know and are able to do, to enable them to connect new concepts and skills

• Encourages parents to be partners in learning


Each day presents suggestions for a Community Learning Circle, Creative Art, Music and Movement, Child-Centered Discovery, Games, and a Story. The Creative Art projects are all imagined and completed by the child, perhaps with inspiration from a song, or a story, or the art materials themselves. The Community Learning Circle presents ideas for conversation, language development and learning games. The daily calendar is not emphasized, since it is not yet relevant to the young child's experience of the world.
