CURRICULUM

STEM CURRICULUM  •  SMALL CLASS SIZE • ENRICHMENT CLASSES  •  CHILD CENTERED LEARNING  •  CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

My Time curriculum was specially designed, through years of experience, to stimulate a child’s innate desire to move, create, explore, play, pretend, and have FUN! Our goal is to provide children the opportunity to grow socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually. Each of these goals is taught through developmentally appropriate activities that are explored both indoors and outdoors. Our curriculum offers children ample opportunities to explore, play and pretend, all while setting the foundation for a lifelong love of learning! The chart below lists the concepts that are integrated into activities and taught in our classrooms throughout the year.

MY TIME KIDS ACADEMY ENRICHMENT CLASSES

Included in Tuition

Storytime/Readers Theatre

Students learn through stories, songs, dance, puppet shows and creative movement. Expanding imagination enhances creative expression and improves children's verbal, social, and language arts skills.

SPANISH

Our Spanish teacher utilizes games, songs, and her knowledge of ESL strategies to immerse the Spanish language into the daily routine. As a native Spanish speaker, our teacher brings passion and fun to her lessons.

ART

Our students do so much more than cut, color and paste! Art experiences in clay, paper mache, 3D collage, and creative building engage the senses and the mind! 

STEM Discovery Lab

Tapping in to a child's natural sense of wonder is what this class is all about. This engaging enrichment class provides a strong foundation in math and science at a developmentally appropriate level through hands-on experiments and investigations.

GYMNASTICS

Research boasts that preschoolers benefit greatly from movement and play. Gymnastics classes help develop gross motor skills, spatial awareness and confidence.  

MUSIC

We are so fortunate to have music classes led by experienced instructors from the Musician’s Woodshed. Our students enjoy exploring various  music genres, song styles and instruments.

What is STEM?

  • STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

  • STEM activities provide hands-on and minds-on lessons and exploration.

  • STEM-based has real-life situations to help the student connect their learning.

 

STEM supports children’s overall academic growth, as well as, develops early critical thinking and reasoning skills. Young children are naturally curious. They wonder what things are called, how they work, and why things happen. The foundations of scientific learning lie in inquiry and exploration- these are the tools of active learning. Fostering young children’s sense of curiosity about the natural world around them can promote a lifelong interest in it. By providing STEM integration in our My Time Curriculum, we are helping children to explore, observe, ask questions, predict, and integrate their learning.
