Collaboration is an essential element of our curriculum.
The teachers are committed to including a culturally responsive and anti-biased curriculum in their work with children and families.
Collaboration is an essential element of our curriculum. The teachers develop and expand topics in partnership with children and their families. Throughout the day, teachers ask thought-provoking questions, listen carefully to children’s answers, and in all interactions let children know that their ideas and investigations are important. In the children’s work and active exploration of their social and physical world, children make connections to language, literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and the arts.
Responsive & Relationship-Based
Our program provides an environment that is responsive and relationship-based. We support teacher-child and child-child relationships. The environment is carefully designed to provide a cozy home-like atmosphere with defined learning areas and materials for exploration. Teachers observe and encourage physical and language development.
What is Primary Caregiving?
One teacher provides primary care for a limited group of children in our Infant and Toddler program. The teacher of each group learns each child’s cues for hunger, sleep, cuddles, and play. The teacher knows how to comfort, feed and diaper their primary children. Teachers sit at the table with their toddlers during meal times. The teacher also interacts daily with the child’s family.
