Program & Curriculum:


Our #1 goal is to get children excited about learning while preparing them to be successful in kindergarten. To measure our children's progress, we have tailored Newport News public school system's yearly calendar.  By mimicking their 9 weeks schedule, we break down our curriculum books over a year time so that our children can master the standards and goals set within each curriculum book.

                      We have a new curriculum in place called STREAMin3.

 

STREAMin3 is an innovative, engaging, and interactions-based curriculum model for children ages birth through preschool.

STREAMin3 is grounded in developmental and early education research. It focuses on 6 STREAM and 5 Core Skills to promote children's development and early learning. The curriculum provides a high-quality option for infant, toddler, preschool, and mixed age classrooms. STREAMin3 includes training and professional development to support educators that choose to use the model in their programs.

 

Skills that prepare children for success in kindergarten and beyond:

 

CORE SKILLS: RELATE, REGULATE, THINK, COMMUNICATE, and MOVE.

STREAM SKILLS: SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, READING, ENGINEERING, ART, and MATH.

 

STREAMin3 also includes A Focus on Interactions- Daily activities, routines, and games maximize teacher-child and peer interactions. Implementation Support & PD- Ongoing implementation support and professional development (PD) that align to the curriculum. Observation & Assessment- Observation and assessment tools help inform teaching and implementation.

STREAMin3 empowers teachers, leaders, children, and their families to be active agents in their own teaching and learning.
