Our Curriculum And ProgramsThe curriculum involves the many competencies that allow different approaches to problem solving.
The program was developed to ensure that each of these competencies is given an equal opportunity to develop.
We incorporate the child’s parents and culture into the program, because it is parents and culture that set values.
We strive to ensure that all programs used by your child will meet his/her individual developmental level, and planned curriculum is implemented for every child at every age.

Computer Enrichment Program
Children are given the choice for computer time each week. We want the experience to be fun—to capitalize on their enthusiasm for the computer. Our goals are: following direction, making choices, sharing, teamwork, and developing familiarity with the topics on the educational software provided. Software is varied to meet the age ranges and interests of the children. Pre-kindergarten & kindergarten children are introduced to computer care and usage. Each classroom will have access to a Smart Board to enhance their learning experience. Enrollment packets are available soon. They can be picked up on site or can be mailed to you. Remember class size will be small to allow individualized instruction and learning.
