Each month brings something new.

Our curriculum is carefully crafted to engage the kids on many levels.

September: All about me: we explore our families, homes, cities and 5 senses. It is a fun way to get to know each other each year.

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

November: Community helpers: we talk about thankfulness and learn about our community. We research all about fire stations, restaurants, construction workers and farmers. We share recipes for a Thanksgiving feast. 

December: Holidays around the world: we find out how people celebrate holidays around the world (Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and family traditions). We end with a holidat party and a card exchange.

January:Winter and holidays: we discover what animals do in the winter, talk about snow, ice and hibernation.

February: Tell me a story: we get lost in fairy tales, nursery rhymes and storybooks. We compare different versions of the same books and tell each other stories.

March: All about animals: from pets, farm animals and zoo to the natural habitats of Pacific NW. We venture outside to explore the creatures that live there.

April: Dinosaurs: we will really get our imagination fly. We will make a fossil dig, feathery dinosaurs and dino eggs. We will even take a brachiosaurus for a walk on a leash. 

 May: Growing a garden: we will learn all about flowers, trees, fruits, vegetables and bugs in the garden. We will watch our caterpillars change into butterflies and release them just before our mommy-and-me tea party.

June: Water adventure: we’ll embrace the summer with learning about the ocean, fish, boats and beach. We will also have a fun end of the year party and publish our yearbooks.
