CURRICULUM

Curriculum

Little Wonders Preschool adheres to the teaching theory that play is fundamental to learning. Research shows that children can attain "kindergarten readiness" through play, high-level questioning, and hands-on experimentation.

 

Little Wonders Preschool follows an inquiry-based learning approach. Our daily routines include a majority of student-led activities and allows time for "independent" play to encourage children to learn through exploration. We believe that social-emotional learning should be a top priority in preparing children for Kindergarten. In each of our classrooms we foster an environment that teaches children self-awareness, communication skills, and emotion management.

 

Our 3-5 year-old programs also follows a developmentally appropriate Kindergarten-readiness curriculum model. The alphabet is practiced daily and children learn numbers, shapes, colors, and more. Our curriculum is developed to meet the needs of each individual student with the appropriate scaffolding.
