Early Childhood Curriculum
In Pre-K3, Pre-K4 and Kindergarten, nature is the backdrop for learning. The intentional design of the classroom is to inspire the children as they learn to read, write and better understand one another and the world.
The Early Childhood is guided by the principles of Reggio Emelia, which originated in northern Italy. This philosophy is an approach to teaching, learning and advocacy for children. In its most basic form, it is a way of observing what children know, are curious about and what challenges them. Teachers record these observations to reflect on developmentally appropriate ways to help the children expand their academic and social potential. Long-term projects connect core academic areas in and out of the classroom.
