Welcome to Our Preschool: Nurturing Young Minds Through Creative Curriculum
At our preschool, we believe in providing a stimulating and child-centered learning environment that fosters curiosity and a love for learning. As you step into our classrooms, you will notice how the physical space is thoughtfully divided into various interest areas, each designed to ignite your child's imagination and exploration. These interest areas include Art, Blocks, Dramatic Play, Discovery, Sand and Water, Toys and Games, Music and Movement, Library, Technology, and Cooking. Through open-ended activities in these areas, children are encouraged to explore and discover at their own pace.
Holistic Development and Michigan Early Childhood Standards
Our curriculum focuses on six content areas: science, social studies, literacy, math, the arts, and technology. By participating in the interest areas, children develop essential skills tied to the Michigan Early Childhood Standards. As they delve into projects and activities that intrigue them, they are immersed in a well-rounded learning experience that nurtures their intellectual, social, and emotional growth.
The Power of Creative Curriculum
We take pride in using the Creative Curriculum, a research-based approach that aligns perfectly with the way children naturally learn and develop. Our teachers serve as classroom facilitators, guiding, observing, and assessing each child's learning journey. To structure our lessons effectively, we utilize Creative Curriculum Study Starters, which serve as models for project-based learning. Through these studies, children delve deeper into science and social studies concepts while honing their literacy, math, arts, and technology skills. This engagement allows them to think critically and explore topics that genuinely interest them, fostering a passion for learning.
Family Engagement and Your Vital Role
We strongly believe that family involvement is crucial in supporting your child's learning journey. Our Creative Curriculum approach provides numerous opportunities for families to be actively involved in their child's education. We welcome parents to participate in classroom activities, share their cultural experiences, and collaborate with teachers to create a cohesive learning environment for their children.
Join us at our preschool and witness the power of Creative Curriculum in action. With our child-centric approach, dedicated teachers, and supportive family involvement, we are committed to nurturing young minds and inspiring a lifelong love for learning.
