We provide a play-based program that introduces skills through interdisciplinary themes and hands-on projects. We believe in providing learning activities that are concrete, authentic, developmentally appropriate, and relevant to the lives of young children. Children participate in outdoor play and music classes with our music specialist. We cater to the “whole” child and pay special attention to the social and emotional aspects of development. Classrooms are rich and varied and are divided into centers where children act as young scholars constructing knowledge and exploring the environment around them. Our flexible and developmentally challenging curriculum allows for individual growth and instills life-long learning in our children.

 

Children engage in listening, speaking, reading, and writing on a daily basis. Teachers use a balanced approach that uses whole language and phonics instruction in both English and Arabic. Equal emphasis is placed on the joy of reading. Teachers read stories daily and children are provided with the opportunity to discuss the stories and acquire new vocabulary. All children are viewed as capable writers as they journal and write stories. Dictation and transitional spelling help our youngest children express their ideas in writing right from the start.

Children learn about the world around them by acting as scientists. They observe, experiment, document, and make predictions and conclusions. Science is hands-on and related to everyday life.

Children learn about themselves and others. They learn what it means to be part of different groups. They learn to share, take turns, and relate to others in a positive way. Respecting others and differences are emphasized throughout the program.

Math is a concrete and hands-on experience for the children. In kindergarten, they learn basic math skills and concepts that are the foundation for the mathematics they learn throughout their lives. These skills include numeration, geometry, measurement, graphing, and problem solving. Often math is integrated with other subjects. For example, when studying about families, children create a class graph depicting the number of members in their family. Teachers use a variety of resources for teaching math such as Math their Way, Math Jobs, Investigations, etc.

Class teachers often engage the children in music in the classroom through songs and movement games. In addition, children visit with a music specialist weekly.

Art is integrated with different subjects. Children use a variety of mediums such as clay, paint, watercolor, etc. to express themselves artistically.
