Curriculum:

 

  • The Creative Curriculum is taught in all classrooms. The Creative Curriculum implements a comprehensive approach to teaching young learners based on the vital role of “play” in children’s learning. The classrooms are organized into interest areas and our teachers use a variety of approaches and take an active role in children’s learning. Academic content is integrated into everyday experiences.

  • We also follow the guidelines of Foundations which are the Early Learning Standards for NC Preschoolers and Strategies for Guiding Their Success.

  • The Handwriting Without Tears curriculum is used in all of our four and five-year old classrooms. It teaches proper letter formation based on the typical child’s fine motor development.

  • Curriculum enhancements of Spanish, tumbling, yoga, and KidzArt are offered as additional classes based on parent interest.
