General Curriculum Guidelines

Come and see. Stay and learn!

The school curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate topics, skills, and expectations for the education of young children. Teachers plan activities that allow the child to learn and grow without undue pressure or stress. Our curriculum includes lessons in language, math, science, social studies, art, large and small motor skills, music, drama, dance and the Bible. All materials used are tested for safety, non-toxic and washable. Children are involved in large group, small group and individual experiences. At this age imagination, reasoning, and social skills are valuable tools for success in kindergarten and beyond. Maria Montessori said that play is a child's work, and we structure each child's play to enhance the overall learning experience. Do not be concerned if you do not see "work" coming home every day as many days of learning do not result in a product to be taken home. For all of us the learning is in the process, not the product.
