During the preschool years, amazing changes happen in children’s “thinking skills.” Their memories are becoming stronger-they often remember surprising details. They can share their ideas in new and interesting ways. Their imaginations are becoming a primary vehicle for play and learning. They begin to compare, contrast, organize, analyze, and come up with more and more complex ways to solve problems.
Based on our knowledge of child development and observing children throughout the day our educators can plan activities that are challenging and achievable for individual children. Curriculum planning will focus on supporting children’s interests, needs and abilities. Children will participate within open, engaging, and responsive environments where exploration and play are encouraged and purposefully planned.
