A popular teaching approach among a variety of private preschools and Head Start programs, it was developed in the late 1980s by an academic (who later formed the company Teaching Strategies) and is based on current information on how children develop and learn. Emphasis is placed on 4 developmental areas; social/emotional, cognitive, physical and language. We observe children’s interactions with their learning environment to assess skills, interests and abilities and come up with activities or learning experiences that encourage social, emotional and new skill development.
We go on as many field trips as we can. This is a highlight for the students every year. Some of our favorites are:
FIRE STATION, LIBRARY, FARM, BAKERY, DENTIST OFFICE, and the ZOO
