Thematic Approach to Curriculum
The teachers prepare an engaging learning environment for exploring a theme, such as birds, building or recycling. We plan the themes for the year to include opportunities for integrating key areas of content, including life, earth and physical science, as well as social studies and the arts. We choose a rich range of materials, including diverse technologies, to entice each of the children to engage in the thematic study. Children's explorations enrich their development of concepts related to the theme and strengthen their skills in all areas. We extend and apply their concepts by experimenting with various materials in the school, and they express their understanding by creating their own representations in a variety of media.
2017 - 2018 Themes
We encourage and welcome any parent or relative who would like to come into school to read or share a special talent or interest. If you have a particular area of expertise that coincides with one of our themes, even better! Please contact us to schedule a time and to discuss age-appropriate activities.
