The goals of our curriculum are multi-faceted. We encourage children to be enthusiastic, self-confident, independent learners. We believe that play is the primary mode of learning. Our curriculum also respects individual learning styles and ever-changing interests. Through our curriculum we promote growth implementing the Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards:
We are here to help children learn from adults and one another by observation, imitation, and interaction. We also provide a safe and secure environment where children can develop self-appreciation, self-confidence, independence, self-control, and a positive attitude toward life.
We are here to help children develop and enhance their small and large muscle skills and feel confident and comfortable with their own bodies.
We are here to help develop children’s creativity, innovative thinking, and flexibility of thought that allow them to think about or use materials in unconventional ways. Our goal is to help them express thoughts, ideas, and feelings in a variety of media.
We are here to help develop children’s language competencies in relation to their growing abilities to communicate effectively with adults and peers, to express themselves through language, and to use growing vocabularies and increasingly sophisticated language structures, which include children’s developing concepts of print, comprehension of age-appropriate text, phonological awareness, and letter recognition. We are here to promote curiosity, and to help children acquire learning skills, such as the abilities to solve problems, make choices, ask questions. We prepare them to express their ideas, observations, and feelings.
We are here to help develop children’s cognitive processes that enable all other learning to take place, as well as, children’s knowledge of the social and physical world. This domain is organized into the strand, Cognitive Skills and those concepts and skills in sub-domains; Mathematics, Social Studies and Science.
