Our curriculum, Mother Goose Time, is a research-based curriculum that is nationally recognized and aligns with the NC Division of Child Development standards. It provides daily activities that foster the physical, socio-emotional, language and cognitive development of each child. From the infant classroom to the preschool room, every child benefits from the developmentally appropriate materials and activities provided.
The Mother Goose Time curriculum brings to life our motto, “Where Learning is Fun.” Learning during the early childhood years occurs when children are given opportunities to explore, create and discover the world around them. Play allows children to naturally develop skills such as problem solving, self-expression, memory and social interaction. Children are constantly practicing what they are learning which allows them to progress to the next stage of development with the help of our supportive, nurturing teachers.
Each month, the curriculum is based around a specific theme. Some themes we’ve done in the past include Down on the Farm, Art Studio, Going on a Safari and Blast Off to Space. Each day is filled with new activities that bring excitement to the classroom and something to look forward to. You’ll even receive a Family Newsletter each month that outlines the theme, the weekly topics and activities you can do with your child at home to reinforce everything they are learning!
