We believe that children learn best through tactile learning experiences. Based on that principle, we have developed a play-based, hands-on curriculum to help children grow as individuals and also as members of a supportive learning community. While Wee Generation’s goal is to provide a nurturing environment to help all children develop academically, socially, and emotionally, the day is also balanced between direct instruction and imaginative plays. Our curriculum is broken up into three blocks: circle time, arts and crafts, and centers.
Circle Time - Circle time is the most structured learning time in a child's day. During circle time, the lead teachers use flashcards, books, and calendars to help children learn colors, shapes, numbers, letters, animals, weather conditions, and other foundational knowledge.
Arts and Crafts - Arts and crafts is a great transition between the direct instruction children receive during circle time and the less structured imaginative play children experience during centers. During arts and crafts, children use what they learned during centers in a fun, creative, and hands-on way.
Centers - Centers provides an outlet for children to use their imaginations while also developing social and emotional skills. Sharing, cooperation, and communication are among the most important life-skills children need to develop before school, and interactive play is one of the best ways for children to develop those skills. Centers also gives children an opportunity to do what children do best-play!
