Young children learn best when they are active and engaged! The Ascend Curriculum encourages preschool children to participate in a number of ways. As one teacher works closely with a small group of students, other students will be engaging in hands-on learning with peers at various learning centers throughout the classroom. This approach creates more personalized interactions between teachers and students and gives children space to take responsibility for their own learning.
Our teachers help our students develop new skills in 9 different learning domains every month. Skills are often taught at a challenging pace, but our teachers are encouraged to modify activities to match the needs and interests of each child. We want your child’s first educational experiences to supportive, challenging, and fun so they develop important skill sets and a love of learning!
Kind Child is a beautiful part of our monthly curriculum that focuses on the social and emotional needs of our children. We encourage our students to adopt valuable character traits like a Positive Self-Image, Responsibility, Empathy, and Thankfulness and work on new emotional skills every month. Our mission is to elevate the emotional well-being of every child in our care and promote positive friendships!
