    Curriculum Overview

    The 3 and 4 year old curriculum is based on the Kansas Early Learning Standards (www.ksde.edu). The Kansas Early Learning Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what young children are expected to know and be able to do, so that teachers and parents can support their learning and development. Further, the standards were developed to align with what research says about young children’s language and early literacy development. Our curriculum encompasses physical and self-help skills, social-emotional development (including engagement and personal social skills) communication and literacy (including oral language, phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, print awareness and writing) and general and mathematical knowledge (including emergent numeracy, approaches to learning, and problem solving.)
