MPC Early Childhood Eduaction Lab School

980 Fremont St, Monterey, CA

Starting at $225/wk

The MPC Early Childhood Education Lab School provides an environment for the children to be creative, critical thinkers and problem solvers. We do this through utilizing eclectic theoretical approaches based on Piaget's Cognitive constructivism, Vygotsky's social constructivism, Bank Street's Developmental Interactionist, Reggio Emilia's child emergent and Urie Bronfenbrenner's Bio-ecological approaches to child development.

We embrace the development of important concepts, skills, and social emotional competencies through a play-based approach to learning that fosters the development of each child's critical thinking skills by giving them opportunities to experiment, explore, and question, while nurturing them as active, successful members of society. Our indoor/outdoor classroom curriculum approach helps each child develop a positive sense of self, recognize the needs of others and fosters creative expression, and a connection to nature. We believe that children co-construct knowledge at home, in the classroom and the community. Learning is an inherently social phenomenon, making partnerships with families and connections to the community an essential component of our program.

Families are children's first teacher(s) and an integral part of our early childhood educational approach; working with families builds a strong, healthy partnership that benefits children, parents, teachers, students and the community. Family input and involvement in their child's care and education is a vital component of our program.
We embrace the diversity of our families and the community and in collaboration with them believe in providing culturally relevant care and education that is consistent with the following 4 goals of the Anti-bias curriculum framework.
