In these programs, our curriculum is based on the research & resources of Innovations in Early Childhood Education.
This curriculum is based on Monthly Themes. Some of our themes include: All about Me, Senses, Community Workers, Food and many more! The following areas are focused on month: Dramatic Play, Art, Science, Sensory, Literacy, Math, Manipulative, Rhymes & Finger plays, Songs & Music, Group Time, Movement & Outdoor Activities, and Spanish & Sign Language Instruction.
Family Participation is promoted in each classroom. At the beginning of the month, families are given a classroom newsletter informing them what the monthly theme will be and invite them to bring in items from home that relate to the curriculum topic.
Monthly assessments are preformed on each child. This is very beneficial when we have Parent Teacher Conferences twice a year so we can know how your child is progressing developmentally. Each report is reviewed by management every month.
In our Three Year Old, Four Year Old and Pre-K Programs our curriculum is based on the research and resources of the Exceed Preschool Curriculum. Children experience large and small group play along with individual assistance while exploring the areas of Language, Math, Science, Music and Art.
Each week there is a different theme explored some of which include: Nutrition, Spring Animals, Countries around the World, Famous People and Events, Winter Celebrations and many more! Each week, families are given a letter that informs them of what their child will be learning that week and encourages family participation and communication. Ongoing monthly progress reports are completed and reviewed by management each month.
Our Pre-K Program specifically prepares your child for Kindergarten. Our families are guided by the Ready, Set, Go Kindergarten Readiness Program. Our teachers include the following in their lesson plans: phonological awareness, journals, weekly parent & child focus activities, structured group time.
At Bell Creek CDC we know children want to be with their friends and we provide an atmosphere that is both social and educational.
