Children are treated with respect and are gently shown how to be empathetic and considerate, how to build friendships, and work productively in small and large groups. Creative conflict resolution, sharing, and positive emotional communication with peers are encouraged by teachers.
We honor differences- both in individuals and within our community. Learning about different cultures provides a deep understanding and tolerance. Our preschool curriculum, community celebrations, and community outreach include activities that recognize cultural diversity and focus on the similarities and differences among people in open-hearted, open-minded, ways.
Parents are a fundamental piece of our whole-child focus. Family-teacher partnerships and fun family activities help to cultivate a positive experience for everyone. We update each family about their child’s daily life experiences in school so they are not missing out and they know what their child is learning and what they are doing in school.
MunchKIDS Preschool Program will focus on a STEAM-based curriculum. “STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.”
We understand that all children are unique and they all learn in different ways. We understand that the same method of learning will not work for all children. Therefore, we believe in implementing a variety of learning styles and developmentally appropriate practice. The key to successful early childhood education is having a staff that is attentive, loving, and responsive. Our teachers and founders of MunchKIDS PlayHouse have a genuine passion for helping each child to discover their own unique interests, and to navigate through their own unique challenges. Our Preschool provides a safe, developmentally appropriate, nurturing environment that promotes social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth, as well as a positive self-image and a love of learning.
MunchKIDS Preschool Curriculum will promote learning and developmentally appropriate practice while helping children meet the various language, social, physical, and cognitive goals. The curriculum will be taught by certified teachers and be based on the most up-to-date childhood education research.
Young children learn best through PLAY. When children are playing, they are communicating with one another, they are making eye contact, they are socially active, they ask questions, they are curious, they are working on their fine and gross motor skills, they are forming friendships and new skills. “Play” enables children to learn new skills in a fun, hands-on, and interactive way. Through “play”, children learn to discover new things and expand their knowledge. Also through “play”, children learn to share and take turns.
