Curriculum

 

The Child Development Centers offer a play based curriculum that supports children’s cognitive, social-emotional, and physical development.  The children enjoy age appropriate learning activities and projects that support their developing ideas and interests.  Activities include creative arts and music, dramatic play, blocks, games, early literacy, sand and water play, math and science explorations, and large motor play, such as climbing and tricycle riding. 

Children enjoy a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack each day.  Meals are cooked on site and served family style with teachers joining children at the table for conversation and community building.  The program offers parent education and partners with a variety of community-based agencies, such as the Early Childhood Mental Health Program, Parent Services Project, and Raising-A- Reader, whose services support family success and children’s healthy development.
