What curriculum does MVBC Preschool use?

“Curriculum is not found in a book.  It is in every child that walks through the door” – Carla Rinaldi

This quote is what MVBC Preschool is inspired by and where our curriculum comes from.  Through observation and discussion, the children share their ideas and interests during a period of time with their teachers.  The teachers then use those interest to create meaningful learning opportunities that allow the children to expand on their previously existing knowledge through exploration and play.  The teachers consider individual differences and learning styles are considered as they facilitate the children to explore and experiment to answer the many “why’s” of life in a positive social environment that validates the children’s questions and ideas leading them to a better understand of self, others and the world around them.
