All our classrooms are carefully and lovingly designed to welcome your children in a warm and safe space. They encourage children to explore and be creative in a bright, clean environment.
We have designed and implemented a strong, rich, and creative emergent preschool curriculum. This curriculum centers around inspiring a child’s love of learning through play. We accomplish this by using every play moment as an opportunity to teach and allow children to be creative, curious, adventurous and inquisitive. Our learn through play philosophy is also supported by language enrichment, artistic expression and with hands-on experiences. At Children of the Island, we strengthen all developmental domains (physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and artistic) while promoting respect of self, respect for others, and respect for our surrounding environment and community. Children form an understanding of themselves and their place in the world through their interactions and relationships with others. We place a strong focus on social collaboration and working in groups, where each child is an equal participant whose thoughts and questions are valued.
Our dedicated and passionate educators encourage and promote a sense of independence and autonomy by providing each child with varied ways and opportunities to experience, explore, and interact with the world around them. Our activities are tailored to meet the individual needs and personality of each child. This is all provided for within a safe, joyful, loving, and unhurried environment.
Our classrooms materials and routines are designed to support our curriculum and encourage a learning through play approach. Learning through play has been identified as vital to a child’s early development and is key in laying the foundations for: learning to read and write, learning mathematics, science, technology and provides a foundation for the arts.
