At the Children's Institute we believe that the child defines the curriculum and that children learn best through play. We follow the guidelines of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) , which suggest that Developmentally Appropriate Practices are those that provide opportunities and activities for children related to their individual interests and institute's levels of development and ability.
The Institute's curriculum supports the development of children through cognitive, language, social, emotional, creative, physical and aesthetic activities. Active exploration of the environment through child-initiated experiences comprises the majority of each child's time at the Institute. Teachers provide opportunities for individual, small group, and large group experiences to enhance the child's own choices, and direct their own learning through out the day.
