Themes

Each month we explore one theme.

Our curriculum is carefully crafted to engage the kids on many levels. It’s a journey that we always take together.

We change our book selection, pretend play area, sensory play, provocations, science area and light table props to match these themes as much as possible. But we also respect the kids’ interests and likes – so we may change the themes during the year more or less often.

September: All about me: we explore our families, homes, cities and 5 senses.

October: Falling for fall: we look at the changing season and focus on leaves, harvest, scarecrows, pumpkins, apples and of course, Halloween.

November: Community helpers: we learn about our community and talk about fire stations, restaurants, construction workers, farmers and more.

December: Winter and holidays: we discover what animals do in the winter, talk about snow, bake gingerbread and ice and find out how people celebrate the holidays around the world.

January: My healthy body: we explore our bodies, from good nutrition and exercise to doctors and dentists.

February: Tell me a story: we get lost in fairy tales, nursery rhymes and storybooks.

March: All about animals: from pets, farm animals and zoo to the natural habitats of Pacific NW.

April: Destination Imagination: we will really get our imagination fly with space travel, dinosaurs, engineering and more!

 May: Growing a garden: we will learn all about flowers, trees, fruits, vegetables and bugs in the garden.

June: Water adventure: we’ll embrace the summer with learning about the ocean, fish, boats and beach.
