Curriculum

 

Infants-2 Year Olds

Our curriculum for our youngest learners is framed by theory and philosophy of life. Led by faith and grounded in evidence-based practices, programs using the WEE Learn philosophy and curriculum work to support children and families. Children’s individual differences and learning styles are considered as they learn through play and interactions with supportive early childhood teachers to maximize each child’s learning potential. This thoughtful and well-planned curriculum has a multiple theoretical basis. By blending what is known from Bronfenbrenner’s ecological systems theory, Piaget’s theory of development, Erikson’s stages of development and Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, early childhood teachers prepare individually and age-appropriate experiences for young children.

Pre-K 3 (Butterfly Classroom) and Pre-K 4

Frog Street Pre-K is a comprehensive, research-based program that integrates instruction across developmental domains and early learning disciplines. Frog Street Pre-K curriculum supports every aspect of your child’s development—physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and linguistic.

The cornerstones of the program are:

  • An extensive integration of theme, disciplines, and domains
  • Social and Emotional development includes Dr. Becky Bailey’s Conscious Discipline®
  • Differentiated instruction
  • Equity of English and Spanish materials and instruction
  • Joyful approach to learning

Enrichment

In addition to our excellent curriculum, we are proud to offer specific enrichment programs that enhance children's knowledge and experience in the areas of health, wellness, music and movement. The CDC currently offers the following programs:

Health and Wellness
Eating Health and getting plenty of exercise is an important component to a child’s learning. We encourage parents to pack healthy meals for their children. We provide healthy snacks, and teach children the importance of exercise to keep their bodies and minds healthy. We are fortunate to have a gym with basketball goals. Even in the cold and rainy months our children will get plenty of play time.

Music and Movement
Opportunities for using music and movement as a teaching tool are woven throughout the curriculum. Music education has been shown to improve concentration, memory, self-expression, and enhance coordination and fine motor functioning, so our teachers expose students to dancing, singing, playing musical instruments, and sign language. Then you get to see your child show off what they've learned at our musical programs!

Parent Education
We make an investment in our parents, too! Several times a year workshops will be hosted for continuing education of parents with topics ranging from Smart Discipline© techniques to family financial planning.

Afterschool and Summer Youth Programs

In addition to our infant and preschool programs, the Center also offers after school care with pick-up from Brentwood and Gullett elementary schools and a summer youth program (SYP) for elementary age children during the summer months.

Through our after school program, your child will be given homework assistance, opportunities for arts and crafts, participate in group activities, enjoy snack time and have fun with free play in a safe and secure environment. The children will also enjoy field trips to Brentwood Park, movie days, and be exposed to chapel services.

The SYP is an exciting (and affordable!) way for kindergarteners through 6th grade students to spend their summer. Every year there is a thrilling theme, planned activities based on age and interest, interesting field trips, opportunities for arts and crafts, swimming, fun games and chapel services for students in a faith-based environment. The goal for our summer teachers is to help promote social skills, sportsmanship, and education and all staff is CPR, first aid, and water safety trained.
