Our preschool uses a play-based, developmentally appropriate curriculum taught in monthly thematic units. We do not use a store-bought curriculum, but rather pieces of curriculums that educated professional teachers design based on the needs of the specific students. The needs of students change monthly and yearly and our curriculum grows and changes with these needs. Upon walking into a classroom, you will see academically rich centers which the students freely choose. Research speaks to child-driven curriculum being more powerful than the “drill and kill” type programs rote memorization of skills is teacher driven. Please speak with the school Department Head for specific curriculum concerns or click HERE for articles relating to this topic.
