FAQs

(Ask the Director)

Q: What is your curriculum designed to do?

A: Our curriculum has been taken from several sources one of which is Creative Curriculum.  It is designed to prepare children for Kindergarten.  More importantly it is designed to teach a child to love to learn and to carry this love into their next learning experience.

Q: What will my child do each day?

A: We believe in the development of the whole child. Each day a child enjoys both small and large group activities with individual attention given during these times.  Both child directed and teacher directed time takes place daily.  All children are introduced to or reinforced in the areas of colors, shapes, letters, numbers, printing,  Fun themes teach your child about the world around them .  Gym and playground become the β€œCan we go now?” time.  Additionally, there is calendar, music and story time daily.

Q: What if my child struggles?

A: Each child moves at their own pace.  If a child seems to be struggling, teachers and parents can meet to come up with a plan.  Teachers give suggestions for at home fun activities.  Teachers will often spend part of Center Time helping a child who is challenged in their learning.

Q: Both of us are working, how will we receive communication?

A: Weekly newsletters are sent home and will be displayed on the website.  Email messages and often text messages through the "Remind system" are sent to inform and update parents.  The online application, Remind, is used on a regular basis. Parents must sign up to receive that.  You can find it through your device's app search. Phone conversations frequently take place.  Parent Conferences are held twice a year to help parents to understand how their child is progressing and what comes next in their learning process.
