    Curriculum
    In the preschool classroom, the learning environment is the curriculum foundation.  Classrooms are divided into well-defined learning areas that encourage exploration, work, and active learning through individual, small group, and large group activities. Learning centers include dramatic play, art, music, creative expression, construction, science, reading/language, writing/literacy and sensory exploration.  Children are a part of the planning process making suggestions for themes and topics to investigate.

    Goals

    • Provide meaningful developmentally appropriate learning experiences that are based on the individual developmental needs of each child.
    • Help children value and respect themselves and others.
