Learning Environment

Variety of learning materials, manipulatives, and activities enhance children’s growth in the following areas:

Language Arts:
Children acquire listening and speaking as well as literacy awareness skills, in both Armenian and English.

Mathematical Skills:
Children acquire mathematical thinking skills, are able to think logically and solve problems by engaging in hands-on activities and manipulating concrete materials.

Science Skills:
Children acquire knowledge about the world surrounding them by actively experimenting, discovering relationships of change and growth, and realizing cause and effect.

Social Skills:
Children acquire skills to become socially competent and self-confident. They learn to cooperate, share, respect, and become aware of others' needs and feelings, along with learning how to acquire knowledge and have respect for diverse cultural groups.

Computer Skills:
Children gain experience working with educational and fun computer software in their classroom.

Gross and Fine Motor Skills:

Children are provided many opportunities to develop their physical abilities by using both their large and small muscles for various indoor and outdoor activities

Creativity, Musical, and Artistic Skills:
Children acquire skills of self expression through musical activities, creative movements, finger-plays, and drama. Through art, they are encouraged to show their creativity. Most importantly, the main focus is on the process rather than the product.

A Balanced Day:
Group activities are alternated with self-selected activities, small group interactions, and rest periods to provide a healthy and pleasant learning environment. Open-ended and structured activities are designed to provide children with academic as well as social skills. Active and quiet activities are provided for a well-balanced and enjoyable day.

Events and Celebrations:

  • Children participate in one educational and fun field trip per year.
  • Holiday celebrations are incorporated into the curriculum.
  • A number of enrichment programs are provided.
