Language(s) spoken with children by staff: English and Spanish
Culturally specific program: We are a dual language program, English and Spanish, where we incorporate activities alluding to different cultures.
Educational philosophy or approach: We believe that children’s different learning styles are impacted by an array of forces. When children are actively engaged and build their own knowledge through hands-on activities in a stimulating environment, their growth and development flourish. We use a research based, reasoned, diverse approach with Creative Curriculum as our play-based foundation. We honor diversity, creativity and playfulness in every experience and we make every effort to provide security and emotional support for all children and their families. We encourage life-long learning and critical thinking, analytical thinking, questioning, and experimentation. We believe that children learn best through meaningful play, exploration, and an investigative approach to learning. Our child-centered program integrates social and emotional development, cognitive skills, language and literacy, mathematical and scientific exploration, nutrition and physical education, art and music, and fine and gross motor development. Children are viewed as thinkers, reflecting on their world, and as empathetic individuals who care for and engage with their peers and contribute to the community.
Unique programs: We use a very advanced Literacy and Math Curriculum. Our full curriculum includes: physical education, music, literacy, math, science, art, computer, nutrition and gardening.
