Beaumont Pre-K Program

Beaumont Pre-K Program

Portland, OR 97211 | (503) 287-9751
This curriculum guide is intended to give parents a better understanding of our pre-k program at IED by explaining some of the ideas on which the program’s philosophy is based, as well as some of the practical ways in which they are applied in the IED program. We use developmentally appropriate practice, a theoretical concept in early childhood education, as an overall guide to curriculum development. We organize our curriculum around themes chosen with children’s interests in mind. A unit may be designed later in the year based on responses or questions that arose in an earlier unit. We use themes to explore the world with activities that emphasize hands-on, sensory experiences and integrated learning. The first section of this guide will explain in brief some of the basic principles of developmentally appropriate practice. If you are interested in reading more about developmentally appropriate practice, a good place to start is the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) web site: www.naeyc.org. According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), studies show that children who experience developmentally appropriate teaching practices in preschool and kindergarten do better in elementary school. Some research indicates that developmentally appropriate practice in early childhood education can lead to higher achievement throughout life. One of the advantages of developmentally appropriate practice is that it is intended to be adapted to the particular needs and goals of the early childhood education program using it.

Burlingame Preschool

Burlingame Preschool

Portland, OR 97219 | (503) 244-0689
At Burlingame Preschool, we believe in a play-based curriculum and for good reason. Much research on children's learning and development documents the benefits of play for children's intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and language development. Our students develop through their experiences with art, song, movement, games, stories, yoga, poems, sign language, outdoor activity, and guided discussion. Children at play are actively involved in creating themes, exploring and establishing relationships, solving problems and developing shared understanding. Children engage in "parallel play" — near each other but with each child engrossed in his own activity. As children get older, they play cooperatively, organizing roles and scenarios for group play. When kids play with each other, they learn to see other children's points of view and begin to understand customs and rules in their own culture and to appreciate those of others. They learn to use language in new ways to describe their play and interact with others. They develop early math and science skills, while improving on their imagination and creativity. And in play, children develop their muscles and coordination.

Cedarwood Waldorf School

Cedarwood Waldorf School

Portland, OR 97201 | (503) 245-1477
Cedarwood School brings Waldorf education to life and strives to instill a love for learning. Our curriculum weaves together the arts, academics and movement, with a reverence for the developing child. We nurture our children’s spirituality, cultivate their ability to think imaginatively and inspire them to seek the truth. Our curriculum covers a full spectrum of traditional academic subjects and integrates artistic activities into the academics. This allows students to engage in learning at the emotional level. Painting, music and story are integral parts of academic lessons so that art becomes a conduit of knowledge, not an optional add-on. Kinesthetic learning is also interwoven through movement and crafts. Cedarwood cultivates a love of, and respect for, nature and the rhythms of the seasons through seasonal celebrations and daily time outdoors. Cedarwood School first opened in October 1997 with one teacher and four students. Now, with over 280 students and a full array of subject classes, we have a thriving program. This has been further enhanced and enabled by the recent completion of a newly renovated wing on our beautiful building. In addition to two new classrooms, this renovation has given us a community kitchen, a spacious faculty room, a gorgeous performance space, an art display hall, and a fantastic music room. We can now truly serve our full pre-kindergarten-through-Grade 8 program and better share the fruits of this education with the Cedarwood community.
