ST. CHARLES PRESCHOOL CURRICULUM PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS

 

We believe that children are naturally strong, capable learners worthy of trust and support.  We look for guidance from each child to aid us in their learning.  We respect and value children and believe that their ideas and theories are a source of curriculum.

 

The early years are the time when children develop self-esteem, a sense of belonging, and a sense of self-worth, the essential skills that form the foundation on which all learning is built.

 

Children learn about themselves and the world around them through investigation and discovery, through art, dramatic play, and social interactions.  Important areas such as literacy and numeracy development are introduced and woven through all activities, taking place in each of the traditional early learning domains and activity centers.

 

The curriculum is based on current research and educational theories of early learning and development.

 

We will provide a wide range of hands on, interactive materials allowing children to experiment and explore their surroundings.  The projects will stimulate creativity and build a positive self-image in each child as well as encourage involvement of family members in each child's learning.

 

Our curriculum helps each child develop spiritually, socially, physically and intellectually in accordance with each child's unique ability to learn.
