Curriculum Statement

While there is no formal curriculum, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) is the focus of the directed crafts and activities.  Children are not required to participate in directed activities, but when they do, they will be learning in multiple areas.  Our goal is to encourage children to be enthusiastic, self-confident, independent learners and we believe that play is the primary mode of learning. Our Extension program also respects cultural differences and ever-changing interests. Through our interactions, we promote growth in all areas of development including:

  • Social: to help children learn from adults and one another by observation, imitation, and interaction.
  • Emotional: to provide a safe and secure environment where children can develop pride, self-confidence, independence, self-control, and a positive attitude toward life.
  • Cognitive: to promote curiosity and to help children acquire learning skills, such as the ability to solve problems, make choices, ask questions, and express their ideas, observations, and feelings.
  • Physical: to help children develop and enhance their small and large muscle skills and feel confident and comfortable with their own bodies.

Our K-8 Extension classroom goals are achieved through integrated, theme-based activities and conversations with adults and children. Opportunities also exist for the child to engage in one-on-one activities with the staff, small and large group activities, solitary and independent play, allowing for opportunities to experiment and explore. Whole group activities are for short periods of time and are suited to the age and ability of the children. Supervised free play and small groups predominate as a means of encouraging social interaction.
