Curriculum for Younger, Middle and Older Groups

Curriculum for Middle and Younger Groups
Preschool children are provided with activities that are challenging while achievable. As recent studies have shown, early childhood education is an important foundation for future education success. The Children’s Corner’s curriculum is designed to work with different developmental levels and different learning styles; teachers want your child to be successful and challenged. The program is based on the Massachusetts Department of Education’s Preschool Learning Experiences. Frameworks are designed to help your child flourish on all levels. Based on six strands of guided learning, the curriculum is multi-dimensional and all learning is highly interrelated.

English Language Arts: provides a language rich environment so your child will continue to expand his growing vocabulary. Children develop literacy comprehension by listening to and reading books, and writing on their own. During Bug week, your child may listen to The Ladybird and write in her journal about her own experiences with bugs. She then might go onto write and illustrate her own story about that experience. Children are encouraged to write and talk about books as they read them. Class sing-a-longs are great fun and help review lessons!

Mathematics: Children develop a deeper comprehension of numbers, conception of size and spatial awareness. For example, how many inches tall are we? How long are our arms? Children engage in fun art and learning activities such as body tracing and painting.

History and Social Sciences: Students are encouraged to ask questions and explore the world around them. The class covers topics such as the different landscapes, seasons, and plants and animals. Students may be asked to discuss how humans and animals interact. Students will brainstorm and learn about how seeing eye dogs help the blind or how we often feed wild birds because we enjoy their company and beauty.

Science, Technology and Engineering: How does the world around us work? We learn through experimentation. Your child will be exposed to many concepts such as floating vs. sinking, estimating and working with blocks and towers.

Health Education: It is important to take care of ourselves! This means eating right and have a blast running around and playing fun games. Your child is beginning to learn about the importance of nutrition and we value a healthy lifestyle.

Creative Arts: Teachers emphasize the joy of creativity; art is focused on process rather than product. Your child’s teacher will often use the phrase “Tell me about the painting” and encourage your child to express what he has created. Maybe he wasn’t trying to make anything at all, maybe he was practicing mixing colors or enjoying the process without a vision of an end product.


Curriculum for Older Group
Preschool children are provided with activities that are challenging while achievable. As recent studies have show, early childhood education is an important foundation for future educational success. The Children’s Corner’s program is based on the Massachusetts Department of Education’s Preschool Learning Experiences. Frameworks are designed to help your child progress in all developmental aspects. Based on six strands of guided learning, the curriculum is multidimensional and all
learning is highly interrelated.

English Language Arts: Children develop literacy comprehension by reading or listening to books or creating their own journal entries and stories. Teachers use a variety of activities to help expand vocabulary; based in English but incorporating other language sounds and words. On any given day your child may greet you at pick-up in a variety of different languages, or wow you at the dinner table with another word for please!

Mathematics: Another academic goal in the program is to develop your child’s number comprehension, and size and spatial awareness. Children use fun hands-on resources such as puzzles, pattern blocks and scales.

History and Social Sciences: Students are encouraged to ask questions and explore and discover! Children participate as community helpers, which aids them in learning their roles and responsibilities in society. Students learn that the world we live in is filled with many different cultures; children are provided with books so they can see people from different countries.

Science, Technology and Engineering: Science and technology are the building blocks for understanding how the world works. Children learn about seasons, nature, and animals. During Sea Week your child will play in the tide pool sensory table and use magnifying glasses to examine the shells. Children learn and explore nature’s everyday wonders. Some activities include sensory table play; students have a great time exploring floating vs. sinking, building sandcastles, and other fun activities.

Health Education: Through outdoor play, physical movement, and personal hygiene we learn about ourselves and how to live in a healthy manner.

Creative Arts: Teachers emphasize the joy of creativity, not the perfection of the final product. Art is a time to be expressive, and there is no emphasis on concrete rules. Teachers often use the phrase, “Tell me about the picture”, and encourage your child to express what he has created. Dramatic play is a time where your child can act out her dreams—becoming a princess or a doctor with costumes, tools and toys.


Most importantly, we understand that children learn more when they are having fun! Preschool is a time to expand your child’s social skills and to build and strengthen relationships with peers. A large part of the curriculum is spent interacting and laughing with fellow students. The playground is a place for your child to play games and run around with peers.

Teachers are in touch with families daily—you will always be a part of your child’s school day! Each day families are given a daily news sheet that informs families of their child’s day, including curriculum and activities. In addition, teacher use the High Scope Child Observation Record to keep track of your child’s developmental progress and to give you an accurate account of your child’s development.
