Our Proprietary Curriculum
Our teaching philosophy is to continuously develop new and innovative programs bringing every child the most current and relevant curriculum to date. We realize the importance of being accountable to the children we serve which is reflected in our efforts...by our dedication, innovation, and ability to prepare young children for higher learning.
Through exploration and discovery each child receives ample opportunity to develop his or her natural curiosity and creativity. With the guidance of caring teachers our children cultivate each and every moment for lasting understanding. This is the key to providing educational programs that develop your child's discoveries into a lifelong love of learning and academic success.
COA Approach to Learning - Active Learning the Central Element
We know that young children are active learners. So, our approach to early childhood education is one of teaching through activities to facilitate growth in the areas of social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. In this regard, we pattern our philosophy after the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) standards with developmentally appropriate practices. There are three types of learning environments that must be present in classrooms in order to be successful: naturalistic, informal and structured. Our classrooms provide all three environments for daily learning opportunities. The evidence becomes clear as we see children problem solve through experiences, use higher level thought processing such as critical thinking skills and as teachers pose situations to children to figure out for themselves. And finally, we believe in respecting the dignity and worth of every individual within each family and value every child as unique.
