We use Creative Curriculum
Through art media, Discover Academy students are able to explore the various textures, materials, and be creative. Children learn that there are a variety of ways to use materials and the end results of their efforts can be very different.
With young children, the product and process of their art is what is important. Children enjoy art at school because they learn that their ideas and thoughts, as they create, are important and accepted.
HOME & COMMUNITY/ SOCIAL STUDIES:
Discovery Academy students have an opportunity to try out a variety of family roles and experiences familar to them. They imitate things they hear (ex: work, words, emotions, and events).
Through dramatic play the children are gaining social skills as they relate to their peers. They are better able to understand the feelings of others and they gain insights into their own abilities to relate to others.
MATH & SCIENCE:
Mathematics learning is provided through activities in the daily program. Practical experiences are offered in classifying, comparing, counting, and simple measuring. Most mathematic experiences are done individually, recognizing each child's level of understanding.
Through science experiences children learn more about the world. They are encouraged to explore materials, ask questions, look for answer, and make predictions.
Discovery Academy students are encouraged to use language and develop communication skills needed for life. As you enter the center you are aware of children and staff interacting and conversing. Teachers model correct speech and are alert to assess individuals needs.
