Our Early Childhood Education Program is a bilingual program that teaches early literacy skills and builds kindergarten readiness. Our strengths-based approach to teaching and caregiving is rooted in respect and appreciation for the role of culture in children’s learning and development. Inclusive environments promote belonging and connection. We strive to respect the individual differences and cultural needs of each child.
We believe that children learn through play. Play meets the needs of the whole child. Child guided learning experiences, individualized learning, and developmentally appropriate learning are key to learning through play. Through exploration, experimentation, and play, children develop a concrete understanding of the world around them, which is the crucial foundation for all higher learning. We believe in a child-centered curriculum. We strive to balance teacher-directed and child-initiated learning with a focus on experience-based learning and emergent curriculum. The activities we plan for children, the way we organize the environment, select toys and materials, plan the daily schedule, and talk with children, are all designed to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and give your child a successful start in school. It is our goal to help children become creative, independent learners who grow in both self-esteem and self-control.
We believe that children need developmentally appropriate learning experiences. Our strengths-based approach to teaching and caregiving is rooted in respect and appreciation for the role of culture in children’s learning and development. Inclusive environments promote belonging and connection. Our qualified teachers strive to respect individual differences and cultural needs of each child. We believe that early childhood education should meet the needs of the Whole Child. Our curriculum identifies goals in all four main developmental domains: social, emotional, physical, and cognitive. The acquisition of positive social skills is emphasized at Adelante Mujeres. We believe that no amount of formal teaching can compare to the influence of parents, who teach every day by word and example. At Adelante Mujeres, family is actively involved through the close connection teachers maintain with parents and guardians.
