Little Academy Nursery uses the Harcourt and Scholastic American curriculum. Our classrooms are based on interest centers. These special centers focus on dramatic play, creative art, science, and quiet reading. Blocks and puzzles provide your child with opportunities to explore, investigate and grow independently and confidently. The main emphasis of our curriculum is to plan activities based on the interests and developmental levels of each child. Our unique lesson plans are brought to life in fun, vivid, and imaginative ways, and are carried out in well-planned, creative and challenging indoor and outdoor environments. Our structured curriculum allows time for learning as well as play, with dedicated time for Physical Education, individual and group learning, quiet time, and activities. All of these various components of our curriculum allow children to express creativity. We offer detailed educational programs designed to help your child develop a lifelong love for learning.
There are many ways Little Academy Nursery works to support your child’s development. Here are just a few:
- Every child is unique and is encouraged to grow and develop at their own pace.
- We support children in their quest to be independent learners by developing self-help skills.
- We encourage children to socialize, communicate, share, take turns, and listen and play together. This functions to strengthen their language, communication, personal and social skills.
- We help children develop their coordination, control and movement skills in our active Physical Education lessons.
- We encourage children to express their creativity through Music and Art lessons, igniting children’s creative development.
- We provide children with opportunities to develop mathematical skills.
- We prepare children for school readiness- from crayon, paint and scissor work to our numerous manipulative toys. Children begin to develop their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination, further helping them learn to form letters.
- We build the foundation of reading skills by introducing letters and letter sounds through songs, rhymes, stories and games.
