We want you to feel that you are a part of your childs life here and to understand more about what we do everyday. We believe that children should be allowed to grow and learn at their own pace. This enables each child to become confident in themselves as learners. The curriculum has three main goals:To help children learn about themselves and the world around them To foster learning through play and imagination To encourage children to feel good about themselves and capable as learners
These goals guide everything we do in the ALC program.
We have organized the center to make it a safe place for children to explore and to learn. We keep the childrens toys and materials on low shelves, and in low easy-to-open drawers. This makes it easy for children to find and play with toys and learning material they enjoy. It also helps them learn how to make choices and be independent. All children also have a place to keep their personal belongings such as jackets, blankets, and pictures to bring home. This lets them know they are a valued individual members of the ALC community.
When you visit, you will notice we have a schedule posted at the entrance of every classroom. This lets children and parents know what to expect throughout the day. Having a predictable schedule makes young children feel secure. The schedule is flexible, allowing for group activities, individual exploration, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, indoor play, and outdoor play as well as rest periods throughout the day.
