Our Curriculum

Creative Curriculum is implemented by making use of children’s interests to enrich our program. You may find a butterfly cocoon or a praying mantis in the classroom in the fall, paper snowflakes in the winter, and pictures of baby animals in the spring; all helping to teach necessary academic skills: the alphabet, number recognition, counting and sorting, shapes and colors, science and social studies. Using this approach provides repeated exposure and reinforcement to make learning fun and relevant.

We believe that play and education complement one another in a child’s life. Through play, children come to know the world around them, learn perseverance and responsibility, develop imagination and increase motor skills. They experience satisfaction as language develops and the senses expand. To a child, play is the serious business of living!
