Our preschool curriculum is organized into areas with a particular content focus, which supports the development of large and fine motor skills, sustained concentration, a sense of order, individual choice and decision-making, self-regulation, self-confidence, independence, responsibility, and cooperation. 

 

Curriculum

Preschool classroom activities are sequenced manipulative materials that are demonstrated by the teacher to the individual child to ensure both challenge and a high probability of success. It is expected that children will choose to repeat activities until they have masted a concept or skill.  Children proceed through the three-year curriculum at their own pace, with teacher guidance and support.  

The curriculum includes the following areas:  

Classroom Elements

• Individual and community learning goals: each child has specific social, cognitive, and physical goals tailored to the developmental needs and readiness of each child.  We promote a peaceful learning community as students learn to care for themselves, each other, and their classroom

• Self-directed activities/ Individual and small group lessons:  all lessons are provided individually or in a small group format, providing students with focused time with the classroom teacher 

Practical Life

  • Develops eye-hand coordination, concentration, and strong finger and hand muscles in preparation for writing. 

  • Sample Activities: pouring, using tools, washing tables, sewing

Sensorial

  • Develops and refines a student’s five senses; students work with geometric shapes and solids and discover mathematical relationships of size, shape, and quantity

  • Sample activities: building a graded tower, learning names and properties of geometric shapes and solids

Math

  • Develops a strong, sequential understanding of numbers and working with numbers from 0-1000 and beyond. Place value and mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) are core components of the math curriculum. 

  • Sample activities: 1-10 activities, place value activities, hands-on addition, and subtraction; memorization of addition and subtraction facts.

Language

  • Develops preliteracy, verbal and language skills and patterns, phonemic awareness, reading and writing development, and children’s literature engagement. 


  • Sample activities: patterning, rhyming, writing with a moveable alphabet, writing letters and words, reading phonetic books and sight words, classroom read aloud with classmate.

Science

  • Develops a strong foundation for exploring and classifying the world. Physical science, biology, zoology, and botany are all explored in detail.


  • Sample Activities: Classifying and labeling parts of plants and lifecycles, using science tools to explore nature and the world outside of the classroom.

Geography/Culture

  • Develops understanding of earth’s physical composition and the continents. Children explore both the physical and cultural aspects of continents and develop an understanding of the past and present. 


  • Sample activities: working with globes, puzzle maps of continents, models of landforms, flags, pictures, timelines, and cultural artifacts

Music and Movement

  • Develops a child’s ear for pitch and rhythm, and engaging children’s natural love of singing, dance, and music-making with hands-on instruments.

  • Sample activities: hands-on music-making, singing.
