Our curriculum is designed to encourage children to become creative thinkers and active learners. Children learn best when they feel safe and valued. We provide a stimulating and interesting environment that challenges children. The program is a combination of child-initiated and teacher-directed activities. Children participate in both large and small groups, and are given ample time for individual exploration. A typical day provides for alternating periods of active and quiet play, both indoors and outside. We encourage children to become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners.
The Child Development Center uses the Connecticut Framework for Preschool Curricular Goals and Benchmarks as a guide for planning curriculum. The State benchmarks require careful and consistent observations of each child. The staff uses these observations to develop curriculum based upon childrens individual interests and abilities. The Center staff employs a multitude of techniques and approaches to accomplish the curriculum goals.
