Our environment is built for exploration and discovery.
We are continually redesigning the environment to stimulate the developmental needs of children and promote growth in the areas of fine motor, gross motor, cognitive, imaginative, language, literacy, social and emotional, and speech and language development. Children are given opportunities to explore, discover, problem solve, and build a strong foundation for future learning experiences.
Music & Movement
Many children find music meaningful and exciting! The music and movement never stops at School of Enrichment. Music is a part of our daily routine at circle time and transition time. We explore a variety of cultural beats and rhythms with our bodies and minds. We incorporate our learning from this class into our seasonal performances throughout the year.
Language and Literacy
School of Enrichment constructs a learning community environment that encompasses a variety of diverse ages within our classrooms. Our optimal teacher and child ratio (1:6-1:8) enables our professional staff to provide your child with the benefits of small group learning experiences. School of Enrichment includes the following programs based on your child’s individual learning style, interest, and readiness.
At School of Enrichment, social-emotional development is a part of all interactions with our students. We implement a variety of activities and strategies to teach this, including the Conscious Discipline curriculum. This constant curriculum builds upon daily language and interactions to teach our students to identify and express their emotions, develop empathy and manage feelings of being confused, surprised, jealous, sad or upset. Children learn about themselves, develop executive functioning, build empathy and learn how to be a good friend through the use of art, role play and songs to grow socially and emotionally.
Everyone is an artist. Best practices recognize the power of children’s art on their development. We encourage creativity and the creation of new skills while using a variety of art methods, tools, materials, and introducing the language of art. Children are exposed to colors, shapes, and textures related to the theme or season.
