Our kindergarten readiness begins in the earliest years and builds each year to Pre-Kindergarten classes that prepare children for success in public and private schools. With this program, we are confident that each child will have an early education foundation that instills confidence, knowledge and self-assurance; giving them the building blocks for success and a lifelong love of learning.
After careful research, we have chosen the Creative Curriculum for our classrooms. This nationally recognized curriculum is “the country’s leading comprehensive, scientifically based curriculum for preschool.” In addition, Creative Curriculum is the winner of the 2008 Distinguished Achievement Award from the Association of Educational Publishers.
The Creative Curriculum For Preschool
The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool forms the basis of our fully integrated program for 3- to 5-year-old children. Nationally known for its forward-thinking, comprehensive, and rigorously researched model, this unique approach helps the teachers successfully plan and implement a content-rich, developmentally appropriate program that supports active learning and promotes children’s progress in all developmental areas.
Preschoolers are independent and eager learners. Our philosophy, supported by current research, is that preschoolers learn best by “doing”, or through interative play in an environment that is rich in experiences and exploratory opportunities. In the Preschool and Pre-K classrooms, each day has a schedule that includes group times (circle time, story time, etc.) as well as center or child choice time. The planned activities encourage language development, mathematical reasoning and scientific thought.
The Children’s Academy and Hospitots have worked with kindergarten teachers and the local schools to develop a Pre-K curriculum that prepares children for kindergarten., The Pre-K classroom activities are organized to emphasize readiness for developing reading and writing skills
