Philosophy
Curriculum is based on current research and knowledge of child development and learning styles. It should reflect an
understanding of how children learn and develop by:
1.
Addressing the developmental needs of children through practices
that are consistent with current research, nationally recognized, and
most effective practices. (All domains are taught in an integrated
manner, not in isolation.)
2.
Valuing exploration, creativity and construction as the child’s primary
learning approaches (Children are actively moving about the
room, interacting, exploring and investigating their
environment.)
3.
Engaging children actively in the learning process and providing them
opportunities to make meaningful choices. (Worksheets are not
utilized in any manner.)
4.
Responding to individual child interests, strengths and needs based
on ongoing observation and assessment. (Sequence of content is
determined by individual child assessment and child interest.)
5.
Supporting children so they will view themselves as part of a larger
community (Children’s needs and interests should be
considered, and peer to peer opportunities should be
supported.)
6.
16
A=Adequate
Emphasize 21st century learning skills for the development of
processing skills through strategies such as open-ended questions,
investigations, imaginative and dramatic play, and peer interactions.
(Flashcards or worksheets are not utilized in any manner.)
