PHILOSOPHY & EDUCATION
At C & E Learning Academy we believe each child has the potential to bring something unique and special into the world. By having a respectful and caring bond with both the student and the family, we as a school plan to create a strong foundation for a wonderful early childhood experience for our students. The active exploration of the world around the children through play, interaction with others, memorable experiences, and hands-on learning activities will provide our students with development and growth that will occur every second of every day with us. We strive to have the utmost respect and love for each child who walks through our school’s doors.
AGE: 6 WEEKS TO 13 MONTHS
In the infant classroom, we follow a daily flow. No matter what your baby’s individual sleeping and eating schedule is, we will come together to make wonderful memories together. We enjoy story time together, outside walks, the learning circle, sensory exploration, and creative art. We spend our days learning several songs, reading wonderful stories, and interacting with our friends and teachers. We love discovering different textures, sizes of items, and our shapes. We also enjoy learning about our weekly themes like shapes, colors, animals, and people. Our little ones are always nurtured, cuddled, loved, and adored and whenever they need something, we are there!
AGE: 13 MONTHS TO 2 YEARS
In the toddler classroom, we explore anything and everything that we possibly can. Our little one’s love wandering around the classroom learning by using their senses. Our toddlers have a daily schedule consisting of group time, outdoor play, meals and snacks, naptime, and the most important and fun time of the day, PLAYTIME! During our group time we read books about transportation, family, and kindness. We talk about our day, how we feel and what it means to be together in our bright and safe classroom. We enjoy our outdoor playtime and seeing the beautiful nature. Our weekly themes consist of exploring our homes, families, pets, and animals. Singing and playing our days away is what makes our room so special!
AGE: 3 YEARS TO 4 YEARS
In this age group we focus on our social, emotional growth, and explore who we are as beautiful, unique individuals. We learn how to work together and how to conquer objectives on our own. We enjoy writing our names, learning to read, and exploring phonics. We love extreme science projects that make us say “WOW!” and we dive into our sensory bin which helps enhance the learning theme we are studying that week. We often have guest speakers and love exploring the community to supplement our learning. We get outside often to move our bodies and strengthen our fine and gross motor muscles. This age group helps to prepare our students for the next grade which is Kindergarten. Our little ones are well on their way to a successful journey into the older ages.
In our preschool class we offer gifted learning which consists of advanced faster pace learning.
