As a professional child care provider, I understand that children

learn primarily through play. Because of this, I do not underestimate its

importance on a developing young child.

Preschool Curriculum

A structured preschool curriculum using a New Jersey state approved curriculum “Highscope” including thematic units is offered

to all children. Thematic units include a variety of enrichment

activities such as: songs, stories, games, imaginative play,

cooking, experiments, stories, finger-plays, and more! Each week's

lesson plan is unique in hopes to keep children engaged in their

learning and development. Activities provided are geared

towards the full development of young children.

In addition, a phonemic awareness currciulum (Heggerty) is used in

order to increase student's literacy skills. Each level of the Heggerty curriculum provides 35 weeks of daily lessons, focusing on eight phonemic awareness skills, along with two additional activities to develop letter and sound recognition, and language awareness.

Because language and literacy is important for developing young children, books are a huge part of our learning curriculum.

Other learning tools used: Leapfrog, ABC Mouse, Alphatales, and Numbertales and Learning without tears.


Portfolios are used in order to help keep track of each child's learning (assessment). Anecdotal notes, photographs, art, stories, and other sample's of the child's work are some of the items that can/will be included.
