Description: We follow play-based principles of early childhood education and are loosely inspired by Reggio Emilia and Waldorf education philosophies. Underlying all of our curriculum is a reverence for mother earth and a deep human connection to the seasons. Our curriculum is nature-based and arts-based, meaning environmental education and arts education are always integrated into the lessons.
Pre-academic skills are embedded in our activity choices and based upon the emerging interests of children in our program. In play-based early learning all academic areas are addressed and regularly overlap. For example, in cooking snack, children are using math skills to count and measure, science skills to observe the reactions of ingredients combining, social-emotional skills by following directions and working as a team. Literacy is emerging by following the recipe written in pictures, children may choose to take notes or draw pictures while participating and build writing skills, and children learn the importance of taking care of our bodies with whole food ingredients and home-cooking. This is the basic methodology of hands-on learning that is the basis of all lesson planning.
