Curriculum Framework

Children Learn Through Play


Don’t underestimate the power of play in children’s development. The Learning Gardens emphasizes learning through play using the Creative Curriculum. Within this framework, children learn and develop:

    • Cognitive Skills – Like math and problem solving in a pretend grocery store

    • Physical Abilities – Like balancing blocks and running on the playground

    • New Vocabulary – Like words needed to play with toy dinosaurs

    • Social Skills – Like playing together in a pretend car wash

    • Literacy Skills – Like creating a menu for a pretend restaurant

Learning is also about knowing how to get along with others.  The Learning Gardens uses the FrogStreet Early Childhood Curriculum in your child’s preschool classroom to teach these important skills. Conscious Discipline®(social-emotional development) is integrated into the early child care curriculum each day.
