Our Curricular Approach
We Believe in The Fundamentals
Curriculum is rigorous, logically sequential, and age appropriate. It honors natural curiosity and offers everything from engaging science experiments and invitations to play that focus on critical early concepts in the areas of ELA, Math, Science and Language. We view primary learners as resilient, problem-solvers that are capable and extremely aware of their environment. We understand that not all students will be Doctors, Lawyers and Engineers. We know we will have future artist, entrepreneurs, writers and everything in-between.
Our innovative curriculum draws from approaches like Reggio-Emilia and from aligned NC common core standards to ignite children’s passion for learning by capitalizing on their natural curiosity and eagerness to learn about the world around them and how it works. We equip our students to exit our learning environment and enter other learning situations, but at a higher level of thinking.
We also incorporate Social Emotional practices and because of this our students display high standards of personal dignity and respect for authority at all levels.
