Our philosophy of education centers around “play.” Through play, many important behaviors and social skills are learned and practiced: the development of independence and self-esteem, sharing, taking turns, accepting limits, using self-control and following directions.
Your child will learn by exploring and experiencing open-ended art projects, stories, songs, games, music, dramatic play, free play, and circle time. The curriculum is integrated into these fun and lively activities so that your child is always learning through active play.
Our curriculum is based on NYS Standards. The depth and extent of the curriculum are appropriately adjusted by age level, and include the exploration of:
- Letters and Numerals: how they are shaped differently, how letters have different sounds and how they are put together to form words; how different numerals show different amounts.
- Shapes, Colors and Sounds: through activities such as matching, patterning, graphing and charting.
- Science and Math: hands-on learning by measuring, weighing, estimating, counting and experimenting.
- Language Skills: through stories, songs, poems, guessing and acting out.
