Curriculum and Philosophy
Curriculums are created especially for preschool children with language delays or disorders, developmental delays, hearing impairments, forms of autism, and more. It is also appropriate for children without delays or disabilities. Our curriculum aims to provide children with speech and language delays, autism, and other intellectual or developmental delays and disorders, an educational program which will meet their basic needs in specific domains commonly addressed in the preschool classroom: Language and Literacy Development, Mathematical Development, Cognitive Development, Fine Motor Development, Creative Development, Social and Emotional Development, Health and Physical Development.
The curriculum uses rhyme, rhythm and repetition to ensure that there is an intentional, extended focus on the most basic skills necessary for future academic success. Skills and concepts are systematically offered in a variety of literacy-based lessons throughout every unit in each developmental and educational domain. Children learn and develop through play, socially-oriented games, music and movement, as well as other sensory integration activities.
It is our philosophy that parents and caregivers be involved in the education process. Our curriculum promotes this communication process between the home and preschool environment. Children with special needs, in particular, benefit from familiarity and repetition to help foster language development and cognitive skills to solidify the necessary foundation to build upon. It is critical for our children to not only “learn” the skills and concepts, but to feel the success of their accomplishments and gained knowledge.
