Developmental Curriculum


Our Developmental Curriculum areas include but are not limited to:

 

  • social and emotional development;

  • language;

  • literacy;

  • mathematics;

  • science;

  • creative arts;

  • and health and physical development.

 

Based on these Developmental Curriculum areas, a great variety of creative, developmentally appropriate activities are planned and implemented in a safe, stimulating, and nurturing environment.

 

Teachers individualize their classroom curriculum to the age group and needs of their students and utilize many different approaches to learning. 

A Typical Daily Schedule Includes:

 

Circle time: Pledge of Allegiance, calendar, weather, songs, sharing, stories, classroom jobs, discussion of theme.

 

Centers: blocks, manipulatives, dramatic play, quiet area for reading, writing, easel painting, sensory table, science, music, listening, art, etc.

 

Daily Project: small group or one-to-one theme related activity to develop fine-motor, language and cognitive skills.

 

Snack time: each child shares in the fun of being the “snack passer” when it is his/her turn to provide the class with a healthy snack. Children with food allergies requiring an Epi-pen must provide their own snack.

 

Playground: or indoor activity room play when the weather does not permit.

 

Music: weekly session with music teacher encourages creative expression through songs, rhythm instruments, and movement, reinforcing auditory discrimination and music appreciation.

 

Story time: Christian based monthly stories with the church staff held in the Sanctuary.
