Little Sprouts Development Center Curriculum
Empowering Children from Six Weeks to 12 Years
At Little Sprouts Development Center, we believe children are talented, capable individuals who:
•Are born with a sense of wonder and natural curiosity about the world around them.
•Construct their knowledge through investigation and exploration, story and play.
•Need to express their feelings, ideas and experiences in many different ways.
For younger children, We offers the Powerful Beginnings curriculum for infants and toddlers and the unique The Empowered Child™ curriculum, which provides preschool-aged children the guidance (and freedom) to construct their own body of knowledge in ways most meaningful to them. Through The Empowered Child™ curriculum, children:
•Have access to a huge variety of activities.
•Discover their special talents and best ways to learn.
•Feel valued for who they are.
•Have the guidance and freedom to learn in meaningful ways.
•Develop critical thinking and problem solving.
The Empowered Child™ curriculum is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early learning and is based on the work of respected child development/early education theorists Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson and Lev Vygotsky. Results from a preschool assessment tool showed that our children made substantial gains in their learning and development and have the educational skills needed for a successful transition into kindergarten.
This unique curriculum, taught by our dedicated teachers, means that every child is empowered to acquire the skills they need to become responsible members of their community, creative problem-solvers and lifelong learners.
At Little Sprouts Development Center, we encourage parents to learn more about our quality care and education programs.
