Our developmental curriculum is theme based and consistent with the highest standards of early childhood education. All art projects, stories, songs, and creative movement activities revolve around the particular theme. The units are developed in alignment with the Pennsylvania Early Childhood Standards, in such areas as early literacy, early mathematics, creative expression (art, music, drama), etc.
The 3 year old students will learn during circle time, at tables in small groups and during thoughtful play. These experiences will expose them to such educational opportunities as related to literacy and number sense as well as many conceptual ideas and themes throughout the year.
Kindergarten Readiness is the priority for our four-year old program. Students will gain a basic understanding of core content areas needed to be emergent in literacy, and develop number sense and other basic skills. These indicators describe the knowledge and skills that serve as the foundation for meaningful early learning experiences. These goals are aligned with the Eastern York School District.
Our Pre-K utilizes the Starfall curriculum for Language Arts and Reading Development. For math instruction, we follow the Math Counts program to prepare our students with the skills needed to be successful in meeting the requirements of Kindergarten. This program is the same mathematics program used by EYSD.
We wish to provide a safe and secure learning environment where creativity is encouraged, where a progressive curriculum is taught, and where each child is recognized as one of God’s children. Our goal is to encourage the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of each child through meaningful play, creative learning, exploration and discovery.
