Thematic Approach to Curriculum

Our educators prepare an engaging learning environment for exploring a theme, such as outer space, birds, or transportation. They use a group meeting time each day to set the stage for the investigation and introduce relevant concepts. Then the children pursue a variety of activities that reinforce the learning goals. Activities are continuously monitored, so that we may facilitate the children's learning and challenge them at an appropriate level.
