Our curriculum is created with the California Learning Foundations in mind. We operate under the belief that children learn best from actually doing. Children are encouraged to learn through their five senses. Our environment contains hands-on activities. What that means in terms of benefits to the family is having their child in an environment where they are nurtured and supported in such a way that promotes positive self-esteem and provides the opportunity for optimal growth in all areas of development.
We believe children learn through play and feel it is important to offer them many experiences. This means we do not spend a lot of time on worksheets. We do Handwriting Without Tears Workbooks and some worksheets but we try to focus more on doing. Studies show that children learn better when they actually are experiencing and doing. We work hard to make sure that they children are engaged and interested in what we are working on. Peas in a Pod also allows children a lot of free choices so that they can explore their environment and learning through meaningful experiences.
We are dedicated to the families we serve and are striving to offer an environment that meets the needs of the whole family and not just the child. We are working on having several family and parent activities this year so we can be a closer knit community. Your child spends a lot of time here with their friends and we want their friends and we want their families to get to know each other as well.
