The educational curriculum is an important attribute of the Child Development Center. We understand
the importance of appropriate educational experiences and their role in the success of children as they
develop and grow. Our staff understands the significance of providing a developmentally appropriate
curriculum for students.
The curriculum for children from ages two to five years was developed by Wor-Wic Community
College's staff of early childhood education experts. The curriculum combines learning with fun activities
incorporating interactive exercises. We offer a variety of developmentally-appropriate educational programs
to help prepare your child. The teachers and staff at the center will work hard to provide your child
with stimulating, engaging, age-appropriate learning activities. The staff uses whole group instruction,
small group instruction and learning centers in an effort to reach all learners. As your child moves
from center to center, his or her preschool teacher will act as a guide who will listen to ideas, applaud
progress and motivate your child to envision and think in new ways. Creativity in the classroom is supported
and encouraged through the use of learning themes or units.
In our two/three year old room teachers strive to assist your child with the development of his/her
social skills, play and problem solving. Listening and self-help skills are also encouraged. This is
accomplished through the implementation of discovery learning, educational manipulatives, singing and
dancing, story telling, games, creative play and other activities.
In our four/five year old classroom teachers continue to assist your child with the refinement of his/her
social skills. Emphasis is placed on cooperative learning, respect and caring. Children will also be
given more opportunities for develop early language and math skills and to problem solve. Students are
constantly engaged in learning through the use of storytelling and other language activities, blocks,
games, art activities, singing/dancing and cooperative group activities.
