The early years of care are vital to a child's development. At the heart of a quality child care program is a carefully designed, developmentally appropriate environment which provides children with a balance of rhythm, structure, and freedom. An early childhood curriculum should encourage the development of critical thinking skills in an environment of kindness, tolerance, cooperation and acceptance.
Our program provides an exceptional and innovative curriculum. Teaching methods and strategies, materials and experiences are grounded in the National Association of the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) principles of child development, including age and individual appropriateness.
Our Education Coordinator provides ongoing assessments and support of our staff. This ensures that our lesson plans and curriculum keep current with best practices in early childhood and refelct the changing needs and requirements of the communities we serve. Our assessment program was developed using the Connecticut Preschool Assessment Framework as well as Bethany Board of Education and NAEYC guidelines.
