CURRICULUM AND TEACHING:
The focus of the Early Learning Center is to provide a solid foundation for success in present and future learning. This is accomplished through four major areas:
The integrated curriculum helps to develop the child's knowledge and skills socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Instructional emphasis is placed on developing a positive self-esteem and a sense of competence.
Teachers encourage learning by planning experiences designed around the basic subject areas implemented through projects and learning centers and play activities.
The integrated curriculum incorporates the content and process from all subject areas: language, development, number and science concepts, music and movement, social interaction. The child is considered a life-long learner. Therefore, the curriculum is designed to help the child to learn the process of "how to learn."
Teachers and parents are partners in the development of the child. Conferences and visits help to establish the best possible approach in guiding the child toward further growth.
