Curriculum

Developmentally Appropriate Educational Programs

At the heart of our preschool is the belief that children learn best through creative, imaginative play. We teach developmentally appropriate programs that follow the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Our teachers incorporate the children’s strengths, interests, and diverse cultural background.

Intellectual, Social, and Language Development

“Children actively construct knowledge as they manipulate and explore their world” (Jean Piaget). We encourage hands on experiences and lots of child-friendly experimentation. Through the various activities guided by our degreed teachers, children learn science, math, language and literacy. Children are encouraged to critically think and ask the question “why.” Teachers plan weekly themes and projects that are of interest to the children and together, the classes create theories and hypothesis that may answer the exciting questions about the world around them. Various materials and tools are readily accessible at all times for intellectual growth and stimulation.

The Integrated Curriculum

Our Bachelors and Masters degreed teachers specialize in early childhood education. The curriculum is integrated and expands on certain themes and projects that may be triggered by students or teachers. We set the standards for our students to become successful in the developmentally appropriate areas of: Language & Literacy, Mathematics & Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, Drama, & Dance. These crucial learning moments are captured by documentation, pictures, and ongoing assessments. Highly integral in this process is close communication and partnership between teachers and parents.

A Lifetime Love of Learning

Just as important is our belief in providing a safe, loving, nurturing environment for each child. Our exclusive Registered Nurse is available Full-Time on-site to provide care from a simple cold to rare medical emergencies or even for a child that may need daily medication (such as Insulin for Diabetes). All of our staff is CPR and First-Aid certified. Our approach to education ensures that each child will excel in Kindergarten and even more importantly they will be empowered with a lifetime love of learning and discovery!

No way. The hundred is there.

The child is made of one hundred. The child has a hundred languages a hundred hands a hundred thoughts a hundred ways of thinking of playing, of speaking. A hundred always a hundred ways of listening of marveling of loving a hundred joys for singing and understanding a hundred worlds to discover a hundred worlds to invent a hundred worlds to dream. The child has a hundred languages (and a hundred hundred hundred more) but they steal ninety-nine. The school and the culture separate the head from the body. They tell the child: to think without hands to do without head to listen and not to speak to understand without joy to love and to marvel only at Easter and at Christmas. They tell the child: to discover the world already there and of the hundred they steal ninety-nine. They tell the child: that work and play reality and fantasy science and imagination sky and earth reason and dream are things that do not belong together.

And they tell the child that the hundred is not there. The child says: No way. The hundred is there.
