The Natural Classroom
Opportunities to learn through nature:
E.C.L.C. prides itself on planning age-appropriate curriculums that combine teacher-directed activities and child-led interactive play. The children’s ideas, interests and developmental needs form the basis for learning themes and projects which is incorporated into each classroom’s prescribed curriculum.
Our program encourages learning though a variety of activities;
- Dramatic Play
- Language Arts
- Writing curriculum, “Hand-Writing Without Tears.”
Our daily routine is built around a team-oriented approach which embodies respect for each other and creating harmony within the school. It starts with the director, to teacher, to aide, to child.
Time outside of the classroom is spent together as a school. This time of undirected play, where the teacher steps back and provides successive levels of support, allows children to take greater responsibility of the learning process and apply the skills they’ve learned in the classroom. These invaluable peer interactions help build leadership skills and develop patience with the older children, and foster growth with the younger children by building language skills and exploring both their limitations and capabilities.
