These programs capitalize on children’s desire to engage in cooperative learning and independent discovery. At Growing Kids Academy, we take pride in our Learning Labs that enable children to flourish in their desire to learn and experience new things.
Teachers implement a skill based curriculum and assessment that focuses on school readiness and age appropriate exploration as its primary goals. Traditional and Montessori educational materials are abundant in each specialized Learning Lab. In the Family Life Learning Lab, children practice home living skills, social studies, health and nutrition. In the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Learning Lab, children discover and explore concepts using materials specially selected by educators who understand how this age group learns these concepts best. The Language and Literacy Learning Lab boosts resources that encourage an age appropriate introduction to academics such as letter recognition, phonics, reading, and writing. Foreign language, music, movement, creative arts, and recreational activities are integrated into the curriculum.
Teachers and children move about to each Learning Lab throughout the day. No boredom here! Schedule a visit to learn more about these expertly designed programs.
