Our curriculum development is an annual process that involves many hours of work by some of the most experienced, capable, and dedicated people in the preschool field. The process starts with our owner, who outlines curriculum goals for language, math/ science, art and music. Using the outlines as guides, a curriculum committee meets frequently to further refine the goals, update existing programs, and develop curriculum for the coming year. Monthly themes are assigned and changed yearly. The end result is that each classroom teacher has access to the complete curriculum and is responsible for achieving the curriculum objectives, through planning stimulating and fun circle times, based on each monthly theme. Much of our teaching is done through “life experience” activities.
While all this may sound highly “academic”, we are also having plenty of fun, as we pursue our goals for learning. Socialization is a critical part of the preschool experiences and our children are learning social skills, and making friends, at the same time they are developing educationally. In effect the preschool environment “mimics” elementary school; although there are no tests, no report cards, only parent conferences and developmental evaluations. The daily routine and activities at Westminster makes adapting to “big school”, a simple and exciting process for your child. We have years of experience in knowing that the process achieves its objectives.
