What we teach
Here is a selection of the learning materials used in our preschools.
Creative Curriculum helps teachers “offer content-rich, developmentally appropriate programs that support active learning and promote children’s progress in all developmental areas.”
Zoo-phonics acknowledges that young children see letters as abstract symbols, and uses animals in the shapes of letters to teach the sounds of letters. Zoo-phonics also uses body signals that “allow children to put their natural ‘wiggles’ to good use and act as a cue for memory.”
Handwriting Without Tears’ “easy-to-teach, easy-to-learn curriculum makes handwriting mastery joyful for students and their teachers.”
TouchMath learning materials “lay a foundation for positive math attitudes and develop a willingness to tackle more advanced concepts with confidence. … Its 3D shapes and matching pages make concepts fun and accessible to every student — regardless of learning style.”
The Incredible Years’ Dinosaur School program uses child sized puppets “to engage children and strengthen social, emotional, and academic skills.”
The developers of Teaching Strategies Gold “believe that authentic, ongoing assessment of children in any early childhood program is the key to planning appropriate learning experiences and helping all children succeed.”
The 5-2-1-0 Program is a program that teaches children and their families about good nutrition and the importance of an active lifestyle.
I am Moving, I am Learning Program focuses on planned movement activities for children inside and outside the classroom.
