Goals and Curriculum
The program strives to create an environment where children can gain exposure to materials and experiences that promote development of the "whole" child, enabling them to achieve their full potential and acquire the knowledge and skills required for future success.
Variety of learning materials, manipulatives, and activities enhance children’s growth in the following areas:
Children acquire listening and speaking as well as literacy awareness skills, in both Armenian and English.
Children acquire mathematical thinking skills, are able to think logically and solve problems by engaging in hands-on activities and manipulating concrete materials.
Children acquire knowledge about the world surrounding them by actively experimenting, discovering relationships of change and growth, and realizing cause and effect.
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.
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.
