Program Approach

Our ECE programs support the National Educational Goals Panel’s objective that children will have access to “high-quality and developmentally appropriate preschool programs that help prepare children for elementary school.” Preschool programs emphasize the use of developmentally appropriate practices and integrated curriculum utilizing individualized units of instruction.

Programs use an integrated learning system that is alive with age-appropriate, group and individualized activities and components, all of which let open-ended play serve as a vehicle for nurturing children’s development and self-expression. Components include: social and emotional development; cognitive development; language development; physical development; and, self-care.

The program aligns with Head Start Child Outcomes, State Preschool Desired Results, and the California Preschool Learning Foundations; fosters growth in all domains of child development; meets the diverse needs of children and families; provides developmentally appropriate experiences based on children’s diverse learning strengths, interests, and needs; offers a rich and diverse collection of activities, literature, and recordings to meet the needs of young learners; extends and incorporates the themes with those already created by teachers; and, provides young learners opportunities for exploring, investigating, and constructing meaning as they grow.
