Play is child's work

Dr. Jean Piaget, upon whose theories many of foundation of Early Childhood have been built, said that young children are explorers and it is the job of adults to provide the experiences and materials to stimulate their development.Play is a natural, child directed way for children to learn new concepts and to develop new skills that will provide the basis for success in future settings. Play is the child's work.

Under the age of 6, children are not yet able to conceptualized abstractly and need concrete physical situation in order to learn. Throughout most of this stage, children thinking is self-centered of egocentric. Children of this age have difficulty understanding life from any other perspective that their own.

The Teachers will plan a developmentally appropriate curriculum that enhance the children's logical and conceptual growth.

The teachers will recognize that each individual is:
  • important and unique
  • should have the freedom and opportunity to develop to his or her full potential 
  • should progress toward independence and self-direction
The Children will learn:
  • reading and math readiness skills and concepts
  • general knowledge about themselves, their families, their community and the world 
  • to cooperate and play with others 
  • to communicate with other children and adults 
  • to take initiative and solve problems 
  • to learn respect for themselves, others and their environment
