Preschoolers cannot be “taught” in the traditional sense of the word. They can be stimulated, guided and encouraged in carefully planned activities that allow them to develop at their own optimum rate. Allowing them to discover the answers through experimentation and investigation.
Play experiences are viewed as fun, exciting and hands on. These experiences will be child initiated and teacher facilitated through open-ended activities. This developmental approach will be done through a variety of play centers, crafts, stories, music, movement, and group times.
Children learn best when there is a planned curriculum of activities based on particular theme. A thematic curriculum provides a framework on which children build new ideas and retain discovered information.
