As we engage in our summer curriculum, we wanted to send you a sneak peak of what your lovely children engage in on a daily basis. Our daily lessons and Balanced Learning Curriculum consist of our Harmony and Heart Music program, Noggin Joggin which is our Big Ideas and Main themes of the day, Wonder Time 1 which introduces new topics and skills, Children's Choice Learning Centers which are enhanced with different subjects such as Writing, Art, Blocks, Reading, Science and Sensory, Math and Dramatic Play.
