Our Curriculum (cont.)

Our curriculum is constantly evolving and developing under the guidance of the fully accredited early childhood teachers. A good example was the apple tasting project that came out of the children's love of apples at snack time. Sometimes the apples were red, sometimes yellow or green. So the teachers and children had an apple tasting with the different colored apples. They then documented the results in pictures, charts and books. They read about apple trees and apples, made apple pie, and used apples for apple printing.

With a ratio of 4 to 1 in the preschool and 6 to 1 in the prekindergarten, teachers can focus on early literacy as well as the children’s social, emotional, and physical development. In a warm and supportive environment, children are given the opportunity to make choices and decisions, organize their own activities and develop confidence in their own abilities, thus leading to greater self-regulation, one of the best indicators of future success in school and out.
