About TLLC Preschool
The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), made up of Early Childhood professionals all over the country, has done extensive research on how children learn best and what is “developmentally appropriate” for young children. Here are some of the findings:
- Children learn best through concrete, play-oriented approaches.
- Curriculum should be tailored to meet the needs of the children. (Children should not be made to conform to a pre-set curriculum.)
- Workbooks, worksheets, coloring books, and adult-made models of art projects are NOT appropriate for the young child’s preschool experience.
- In children’s art, the “process” is more important than the “product.” Adults need to remember that the children develop at different rates.
- Teachers should take “cues” from children to optimize their learning.
Our goal is to develop competent, happy, and curious children. Teachers will provide a variety of activities to stimulate the children, physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially every day. Activities at the Preschool are both planned and spontaneous. The Preschool will provide opportunities that encourage the development of the child’s self-esteem and self- control with the use of positive guidance, an appreciation of cultural diversity, and respect for each child’s individuality.
