Philosophy & Curriculum


Heights Preschool & Early Learning Center’s philosophy is to help children attain their emotional, social, physical, and intellectual development through play and thematic units.

Children grow in predictable stages, therefore, our goals are to:

* treat each child as an individual

* work from the level each child has attained and move forward at their individual pace

* teach a love of learning

* help your child succeed with positive reinforcement

*   *   *

Children learn best through play, therefore, we provide:

* hands-on learning

* classroom routines

* opportunities for active involvement

* meaningful experimentation, and

* reinforcement through repetition

*   *   *

 In an effort to meet all your child’s developmental needs, our program follows monthly thematic units and daily lesson plans that focus on:

* building language development

* movement (fine and gross motor skills)

* social interaction

* creativity and problem-solving

* cognitive development

* art, music and drama

Many people ask me: What curriculum do you use?  I don't think just one curriculum can meet the needs of all children so we use bits and pieces from different products.  We have created a 20+ page matrix that goes over the experiences we want each child to have at Heights Preschool broken into age groups(1 year olds-4 year olds) and content. Teachers use this framework in planning for their year.  Below you will find three sample pages of our matrix.
