PLAY-BASED APPROACH

Our centers revolve around a play-based approach that is child-centered and supports the development of the whole child. Our teachers plan intentional, hands-on learning experiences for our children to explore based on specific goals identified for the children. The activities planned are guided by the children’s interests, previous experiences and preferred learning styles to promote a high level of engagement and participation.

WISCONSIN MODEL EARLY LEARNING SOLUTIONS

The WMELS is a set of standards created by professionals in the field of early childhood education to outline typical child development between the ages of birth and six years. The standards include Health & Phycisal Development, Language Development & Communication and Cognition & General Knowledge. All of our Primary and Support teachers complete an 18 hour training on WMELS.
