Learning by Exploring
We are excited to offer the Maryland State Department of Education Voluntary State Curriculum, (The Creative Curriculum and Frog Street Pre-k.) This “hands-on, minds-on” approach is based on the belief system that children learn by doing. This system encourages children to learn through play and by exploring. Daily group activities are designed to help children build skills in Personal and Social Development, Language and Literacy, Mathematical Thinking, Scientific Thinking, Social Studies, The Arts, Physical Development and Positive Character Building. Assessments are given 3 times per year and are an integral part of the curriculum. Pre-K 3 & 4 students are administered Early Growth Benchmark Assessments while Pre-K 2 students are assessed on their current topics of study. Progress reports are provided twice per school year and parent/teacher conferences are available each fall, winter, and spring and/or when requested. Theme related field trips are also a part of our curriculum along with introduction to sign language, and Spanish. This developmentally appropriate curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of young children and utilizes Maryland’s Common core Standards for Kindergarten readiness.
