The Seedling School offers a full and part-time developmental curriculum to all children 2 to 6 years of age. This school was opened to provide young children, and their parents, with the best possible environment for early childhood development.
The Seedling School provides for all children a safe, nurturing and enriching environment. By recognizing different learning styles, we foster a love of learning through a balance of developmentally appropriate curriculum and creative play. We seek to stimulate and encourage diversity of thought among children. In partnership with each family, The Seedling School strives to develop character by teaching social skills, citizenship, and moral values. The Seedling School provides children of all cultures an opportunity to learn and play together.
Each classroom is arranged with many interest centers. At this age, children learn best by having direct sensory encounters with the world as well as through teacher-directed activities. Planned activities support our established curriculum goals. Our program includes art, literature, music and movement, language development, math and scientific learning opportunities.
Each child’s individual needs are continually assessed regarding social, cognitive, emotional and physical needs. Children are guided throughout the day with a balanced curriculum of activities to enhance specific skills and subjects. The program is designed for all children to experience success and to acquire a solid base of experiences that are essential for later learning. The Seedling School helps each student to develop high self-esteem and excitement for learning.
Our Kindergarten Readiness Program is implemented in our Transitional-Kindergarten classroom and was created to better prepare our students for their entry into Kindergarten. Our TK students experience many different areas of social interaction, group orientation and academic preparation through age-specific lesson plans.
