Developing skills, concepts, and ideas
The EC1 and EC2 Programs are designed for children three to four years old and four to five years old. Each classroom, composed of 22 children and three teachers, includes indoor and outdoor experiences organized around learning centers and themes which change throughout the year. As integral components of each Early Childhood classroom, learning centers offer developmentally-appropriate opportunities for children to interact with each other, with materials, and with concepts and ideas.
The Early Childhood Curriculum strives to help children develop self-esteem, motor skills, creativity, self-mastery, and autonomy, aiding the child with gradual separation, and developing skills in language and communication, socialization, logical and sequential thinking, literacy, and mathematical concepts.
