Our early childhood curriculum emphasizes the importance of the individual development of the whole child, socially, emotionally, cognitively, physically and spiritually. Our curriculum is guided by the principle that children learn best by being actively involved in their environment. Our teachers create classrooms that provide many opportunities for the children to interact with materials, allowing them to explore experiment and discover in an environment that supports independent and inquisitive learners. The activities we plan, the way we organize the environment, select the toys and material, and talk to the children are all strategic, in that they are designed to accomplish the goals of our curriculum.
Our teachers integrate an emergent curriculum approach into a thematic approach (built around the Jewish and secular holidays and seasons) to create a synthesis of two types of programs.
