Curriculum Overview

Our curriculum is designed for curious and adventurous learners. We follow a child focused education method where children delight in wonder and curiosity through experiential learning opportunities.

The Early Years

In the early years (ages 2-5), your child will be exploring the world around them with a strong focus on developing fine motor skills, pretend play, and artistic creativity. We believe these skills are the foundation for writing and reading success. When it comes to academic core skills, we do not include formal lessons during the early years as we believe it’s more important to build foundational skills. The goal with any letter or number activity during these years is simply exposure.

Toddler Curriculum

  • For ages 18 months – 3 years old

 

With over 50 toddler friendly learning themes to choose from, our toddler curriculum is research-based, mom-tested, and toddler-approved. It’s the only true child led homeschool curriculum for toddlers designed to honor their playful, inquisitive toddler ways. This curriculum is NOT designed for academic learning even though letter themes are included. Instead, the goals of this curriculum are to explore the world, nurture their curiosity, inspire their creativity, and hone their fine motor skills.

Our toddler curriculum has 3 sections to choose themes from:

  • The Young Toddler- These units are designed for toddlers 18 months through 22 months old. Each month there is a new theme based around a color and shape, with sensory and motor activities, as well as an introduction to a variety of art mediums. More laid-back, The Young Toddler section eases your child into Tot School. This means you can take your time learning about their interests, how they learn, and develop your routine around their natural flow.
  • The Letter Themes- The majority of your themes will come from this section. Every letter of the alphabet is connected to a theme. This is not intended to be done alphabetically. Rather, parents choose which theme to do based on their toddler’s interests or things happening in their lives. Each letter of the alphabet has its own 2-week theme, though the primary focus is on the play-centered learning activities, with some exposure to the letter. Each letter theme includes 4 tot trays, 6 theme activities, 2 sensory bins, a book list, songs/fingerplays, 2 letter activities, 2 shape activities, 2 color activities, a literacy connection, and 2 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) connections.
  • The Extra Themes- The Extra Themes include holidays and other themes toddlers are usually interested in. Each theme in this section includes 6 theme activities (or more), 2 tot trays, a book list, songs/fingerplays, a sensory bin, a literacy connection, and 2 STEAM connections.

 

The toddler curriculum is projected to be released in November 2024.

Preschool Curriculum

  • For ages 4-5 years old

 

The preschool curriculum is an extension of the toddler curriculum. With over 40 themes to choose from, the preschool curriculum is designed with curious, playful, adventurous preschoolers in mind. This curriculum is NOT designed with the goal of academic learning. Instead, our preschool curriculum is designed to foster imaginative play, hone motor skills, and inspire creativity. Each theme includes a book list, invitations to explore, literacy, math, science/stem, art, motor, and cooking activities.

Plus, you’ll find a year long outdoor learning guide with quick monthly themes to explore nature that can be easily added alongside the traditional themes.

The preschool curriculum is projected to be released in the spring of 2025.

There is a strong focus on problem solving, critical thinking, analyzing, and synthesizing information while they learn how to think for themselves.  During this time, we add more project based learning with real world applications.
