Our program is based on the work of Piaget, Vygotsky, Bev Bos, The Reggio Emilia Approach and other child development theory. We consider it to be a developmentally appropriate program for young children. A developmentally appropriate program as defined by the National Association for the Education of Young Children is one that is planned and carried out based on a knowledge of how children grow and what they can do socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically at each state of development. Children learn new skills and develop special interests as they take on typical growth tasks at each stage of life. In addition to having their own individual timetable of growth and development, each child brings his/her own special interest, life experiences, strengths, and needs.
Our program is also age-appropriate as it takes into consideration the normal sequences of growth typical of children with a given age group. Our teachers understand that young children are active, social individuals who have lots of ideas they want to share. Preschoolers are busy developing friendships and they benefit most when offered a variety of activity choices, such as dramatic play, block building, art, toys, puzzles, exploring sand and water, cooking, music and movement, and a rich and ever changing selection of wonderful books to read.
