Our curriculum is designed to engage students in active learning alongside explicit instruction. At the core of our curriculum is hands-on investigative play, making learning real and meaningful. Through play, children develop numeracy, reading, writing skills, problem-solving abilities, and conflict resolution skills. We focus on the whole child’s development, not just cognitive skills.
Camelback Holistic Preschool Curriculum
Our curriculum covers various content areas based on Arizona Early Learning Readiness Standards:
- Approaches to Learning
- Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development and Health
- Language, Literacy, and Communication
- Creative Arts
- Science and Technology
- Social Studies
Additionally, we teach life skills, including decision-making, resilience, problem-solving, intrinsic motivation, responsibility, effective communication, and creative thinking.
We believe meaningful assessment isn’t about ranking children but reflecting on their growth and progress. Our assessments involve ongoing observations, anecdotal records, work collection, and children’s portfolios.
