Our Infant-Toddler Curriculum is based on the principle that children learn best through direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas. During this active learning process, infants and toddlers are encouraged to discover the world around them by exploring and playing. Learning and development are anchored by trusting relationships with caregivers, who are close at hand to support the children as they play.
Our educational approach with young children and preschoolers is based on the belief that children or “construct” their knowledge of the world — they are "active learners". This means learning is not simply a process of adults giving information to children. Rather, children discover things through direct experience with people, objects, events, and ideas. They learn best from pursuing their own interests while being actively supported and challenged by adults.
