Our curriculum operates on the belief that the child learns best by doing.
It encourages children to learn and explore through use of their senses,
such as, touching, tasting, smelling, listening, and looking.
We use materials such as blocks and manipulatives to help the children
learn about size, shape, and color. We use a wide variety of sensory and
art supplies, all for the children to create freely! It is the process
that matters, not the product. We provide many opportunities for reading,
singing and rhyming, not only during circle time, but also during free
The curriculum's goal is to teach children how to learn, giving them
a valuable tool for success in their later years as well. This curriculum
encourages children to be independent, self-confident, and inquisitive
