Our curriculum is emergent; it builds upon the interests of children. Topics are captured from the talk of children, through community or family events, as well as our world today. Throughout a theme, our teachers encourage the children’s natural thought processes and curiosity. The goal of thematic emergent planning is to create lifelong love of learning.
3-year-olds seem to blossom as we see the benefits of previous development come together and emerge in these more confident children. They are physically secure and socially confident. Cooperate play begins to take place. Teachers encourage the spirit of 3-year-olds and guide them in exploring their strengths and interests.
