Children gain an understanding of the world around them by experiencing a
curriculum that is meaningful.
At Kids & Company, the teachers implement a cue-based or child-centered
philosophy to create a program that is responsive to all children in the group.
Teachers develop and adapt their program by observing and listening to the
children. Through this emergent curriculum, children are provided with the
opportunity to decide what they would like to learn about. This builds a
foundation for success and lifelong learning.
The curriculum is designed to involve children in experiences to enhance
language, literature, music and movement, art and socialization. Through play,
all areas of development are fostered. In small groups, children receive
individual attention in a nurturing environment where a healthy attitude
towards learning is developed.
By creating a safe, secure and warm environment, children will develop
independence, confidence and a positive sense of themselves and the world
