Curriculum is one of the many things that a child care center will take pride in. That is because curriculum is such a big component of what can make or break an education. When a curriculum has been done well, both the child care providers and the parents can feel confident in the education that all children attending are receiving.
As a parent, one of the questions that we get quite a bit of is whether or not curriculum really matters at such a young age. The answer: absolutely!
In today’s blog, we are going to go over a few of the reasons why you undoubtedly want to look into the curriculum of an early childhood education center before enrolling your child. Let’s get started.
One of the primary reasons that you want to find a school with incredible curriculum is because these are the early years for your child, and there are so many ways that they are developing at this point in life. Your little one is figuring how to act in social situations, how to manage their emotions, how to communicate, how to recognize colors, numbers, and letters, and so much more. While these are all lessons that you can surely teach your child, if they’re spending periods of their day at a child care facility, you want to make sure that they’re learning these lessons there too.
Aside from the lessons that your little one is learning making a difference, the way that they’re being taught makes a difference. When you look at the various child care options that are available, you want to make sure that you’re also looking into their preferred method of teaching.
- Are they a school that focuses on STEM learning?
- Is it a hands-on learning classroom?
- What are the methods that they’re going to use while teaching your child?
- Is this learning method practical for the rest of their education?
These are the types of questions that you want to be asking when finding the right child care facility for your child.
Building a Foundation
Even though these young years of your child’s life may seem like they’re intended for nothing more than play, these are also the years where they will build the foundation of their education. With that being said, a majority of the lessons that your child will learn are going to be taught through play and activities that they enjoy. At the end of the day, however, we want to ensure that every child that attends Child’s World Academy in Monroe leaves with a sound foundation that they can rely on for the duration of their education.
