Our curriculum  is based upon the philosophy of learning through play. It is organized around three major goals: Cognitive Development, Social-Emotional Development and Physical Development. Under each goal are developmental skills which the teachers use as objectives in planning thematic learning units and daily routines. All children will not master these skills at the same time. The teachers encourage them to progress through the curriculum and to achieve their maximum potential in preparation for kindergarten.
