Core Knowledge curriculum

Creative, collaborative learning

Used with children in the Preschool and JK/SK programs, Core Knowledge is a sequential learning model that is content and language rich created within a thoughtfully planned and vibrant learning environment. It is a collaborative approach to learning that is specifically designed to provide children with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills, while leaving space for freedom of expression. It strengthens children’s natural creativity, delivers opportunities for socialization and fosters emotional intelligence in addition to building academic capabilities.

Semesters are set up in a way that continuously build on previous learning, in an effective and proven sequence.
Sequential Programing
Activities are done in large and small group settings to build social skills, preparing children for grade school.
Collaborative Learning
Children explore, understand their emotions and express their feelings through art, music and dramatic play.
