Children and adults learn best through hands-on experiences with people, materials, events and ideas. That principle is our approach to teaching and learning.
Our curriculum includes components for:
- Infant-toddler care and education
- Preschool education
- Early literacy
- Movement and music
- Elementary education
- Youth programs
Each individual program consists of a complete system of teaching practices, defined curriculum content areas for each topic and age group, assessment tools, and a training model. The practices and content are flexible by design and are easily adapted to individual needs and institutional requirements.
We emphasize adult-child interaction, a carefully designed learning environment, and a plan-do-review process that strengthens initiative and self-reliance in children and young people. Our curriculum integrates all aspects of child and youth development. Using research-validated strategies, this approach enhances each young person's growth in the foundation of academics as well as in social-emotional, physical and creative areas.
