The period of Early Childhood is a happy energetic period of life, filled with great diverse learning powers. It is a period of immense learning potential in the entire human development cycle. Happy Minds Kids Academy’s program philosophy is based on this principle and draws its inspiration from the High/Scope Approach, the Developmental Philosophy and works of Dr. Maria Montessori.
We believe that each child is unique and capable, and our program promotes and enhances children’s potential while recognizing and supporting the families and their cultures.
The Child’s inherent love of learning is encouraged by giving them opportunities to engage in spontaneous, meaningful activities under the guidance of a trained adult. Our classrooms provide a prepared environment where children are free to respond to their natural desire to work and learn. Each child is encouraged to explore and learn through hands-on experiences in an environment that affords them the opportunity to explore, discover, and enjoy the learning process.
Our program provides for optimum social, emotional, cognitive, linguistic, and physical growth and development of the child, through developmentally appropriate educational apparatus. In keeping with the High/Scope, Developmental and Montessori philosophies, our Preschool’s curriculum encompasses activities in the following areas:
- Social/Emotional Development
- Cognitive Development
- Practical Life
- Language Arts
- Cultural Science
- Art and Craft
- Physical Activities
We strongly believe that parents and teachers should work hand-in-hand to make education effective and enriching, and therefore encourage parent involvement in steering children to reach this goal.
Within this framework, we believe that children progress at their own pace and rhythm, according to their fullest individual potential, during the crucial years of development. It is our ultimate goal to ensure that the formative years of childhood is stimulated appropriately to build a strong solid foundation that will carry them successfully, through the rest of their lives.
