During early childhood, children are given the opportunity to learn in different environments and settings through observation. Because children learn best through observation, it is our goal to provide our students with an atmosphere that is conducive to observing their environment, their teachers and fellow classmates. This approach to education is called social learning. Though there are many components that support the overall structure of our curriculum, social learning is its firm foundation. The component of social learning is then guided by the support of various teaching techniques and strategies such as reading, music/dance, creative expression activities, group games, and sensory tables. Another component that supports a firm foundation in social learning is a positive behavior environment. It is important for a child’s overall learning to engage in a positive atmosphere, which will be provided to all students through the use of Positive Behavior Support tools and strategies. Our curriculum, together with small class sizes, will provide our students with a firm foundation to grow and develop the skills necessary for early childhood. In addition, by utilizing multi-sensory and cross curricular learning strategies, our students will be able to access and connect with information through their various modes of intelligence.
