Pre-school rooms are equipped with age and developmentally appropriate learning materials. Activities reflect the interests of the group and are often child directed. As children engage in the activities that interest them, their feedback allows staff to build meaningful learning opportunities based on each child’s individual needs. Willowbrae Academy curriculum has three unique programs. Our Young Scholars program is based on three key learning areas: literacy, mathematics, and science. Children are exposed to activities in these areas that will encourage; self-expression, listening, exploration & discovery, identification & recognition, and problem solving. Willowbrae’s BodyBreak KID FIT focuses on activity and education. We provide physical activities and healthy lifestyle education while children are in our care. Our Willowbrae Creative Kids includes: visual arts, dramatic play, music, dance & creative movement and culture & heritage. Children are exposed to developmentally appropriate activities in these key areas to help support social, emotional and cognitive growth.
