Our curriculum prepares children to get along well with others and become enthusiastic learners. We provide a purposeful and inspiring learning environment that helps children grow in all areas of development: social-emotional, physical, cognitive, and language. The goal is for each child to be prepared for success in school.
Our teachers integrate children’s spontaneous, day-to-day discoveries, interests, and curiosity into established learning goals and activities. When teachers incorporate children’s ideas into their experiences, their self-esteem is enhanced, and over time this will support children in becoming self-directed learners. We offer our children a combination of child-initiated and teacher-directed learning experiences, such as circle time, dramatic play, reading, storytelling, music/movement, dance, science, nature, cooking, mathematics, early literacy, language arts, and gross and fine motor activities.
Our playground and school garden offers a natural setting for scientific exploration. Children find and study bugs, worms, butterflies, plants, and seeds and watch them grow. The children enjoy exploring the various textures of the different plants and flowers. We also incorporate nutrition and wellness into our curriculum. Helping children to understand how to be healthy will be an attribute that follows them throughout their lives.
Our teachers are engaged in a continuous cycle of observing, guiding, learning and assessing children’s progress to ensure each child’s experience at Redeemer Preschool is rewarding and meaningful.
