Our Curriculum

FP_02200.jpg

We follow our original curriculum, developed through years of work with preschool children in search of the best practices to combine academic learning with creativity and curiosity. 

The skills our curriculum targets were based on the focus skills for The Stanford–Binet, NNAT and OLSAT tests, which are used as entrance exams for renowned elementary programs in NYC, including public schools' Gifted & Talented program and Hunter Elementary. 

We rely on play-based activities and projects, using fun, kid friendly themes, to engage children in reasoning, visual spatial thinking, vocabulary building and more. 

Student's progress is tracked through a baseline assessment administered each trimester. Parents will be provided with a progress report. 

Some of our weekly themes are:

Holidays

Seasons

All about schools

All about me

Friends and Sharing

Zoo

Insects and Bugs

Discipline Guidelines

Our philosophy emphasizes the importance of positive guidance, which aims for children to see themselves as worthy and capable members of the classroom, to express strong emotions in acceptable ways, to understand the viewpoints of others, and to work cooperatively with their peers.

 

 

The teacher guides children’s behavior by establishing predictable routines, setting clear guidelines, and modeling kindness and respect. The teacher helps children understand the consequences of their actions throughout the day, not only when they engage in unsafe or unacceptable behavior.
