Our curriculum content is designed to achieve long-range goals for children in all areas - social, emotional, cognitive, self-help, language, fine and gross motor. It is designed to achieve the goals of raising enthusiastic and lifelong learners. It encourages children to be independent and self-motivated to accomplish tasks, at the same time it requires them to be inquisitive and creative to understand how things in their environment work. The activities we prepare for the children, the way we organize the environment, select toys and materials, plan the daily schedule, and talk with children, are all intended to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and give them a successful start in school.
