Through non-competitive activities we support the child’s natural curiosity and creativity. We utilize a variety of art and music as well as Montessori and Reggio Emelia techniques to provide the concrete experiences that are so necessary to learning during early childhood.
Our program is built on Montessori principles, uses Reggio Emilia theory, and concepts from the Creative Curriculum for Preschoolers. This exciting combination allows us freedom to create stimulating and developmentally appropriate centers. Our students learn through play, work in small or large groups, as well as individually.
Creative Curriculum is a research-based approach to educating our students. It grants the teacher the ability to teach the student and gives the student space to explore their interests. In the classroom we encourage each child to immerse themselves in their work for the day. We guide them through social interactions, build their self-confidence, and critical thinking skills. We have toy free play time during our morning outdoor play time. This permits the child time to continue building their social skills, engage their imagination, and work on problem solving.
