Our goal of developmentally appropriate teaching is to provide experiences that meet children’s needs and stimulate learning in all developmental areas; physical, social, emotional, and intellectual. All activities and interactions are designed to develop the child’s self-esteem and instill a positive attitude toward learning which is essential for building a strong foundation of early childhood years.
Our preschool curriculum functions like a stepping stone from home to school. Children at this age are very curious about the things around them. They have their own desire to learn through their own senses from the environment. They will be encouraged to explore and choose the activity they want to be engaged in. Based on this autonomy children are provided with various interactive and exploratory activities, guiding children’s sensory-motor, cognitive and social emotional growth and development.
Children will develop their talents and curiosity for learning with confidence as they achieve their age appropriate skill for each learning stage. They begin to interact with their peers and adults and develop their social and emotional skills. They can define the world around them to be safe and see themselves connected to other people and motivated by their positive inner feelings. This skill will be a strong foundation for success in children’s early education experience.
