Our Curriculum

16th Mar 2015

For our Curriculum, our center is working towards blending our current emergent curriculum with the Abecedarian Approach. (play-based learning)

The Abecedarian`s focus is that Language is the first building block in a child;s development.

The Abecedarian approach that we are applying to our program consists of 4 elements;

 

 

 

 

 

 

Language Priority – always using language that is individual, frequent and intentional

– Game: “Find your name and throw the ball towards it“

– Matching Game: recognizing similarities (same/different)
