Pre-K4

Curriculum: The Letter People and the Children’s Bible

In addition to the curriculum, the teacher incorporates several different methodologies taken from Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and Frog Street. It is a theme-based approach rich with Developmentally Appropriate Practices.

Every day, the children will be involved in hands on activities that cover science, language and literacy, math, art, physical development, and music. They question and explore, sing and dance, build and paint, read and write, and they PLAY and make MESSES! After all, play IS a child’s work. It’s how they make connections and understand the world around them.
