The staff at Young World Child Care & Learning Center offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum in every classroom. Our Younger and Older Infant classrooms utilize Georgia Early Learning & Development Standards (GELDS). In the Younger Infant class, the focus is on visual stimulation and the focus in the Older Infant class is on verbal stimulation.
For our Toddlers, Twos, and Three Year old classrooms we utilize the GELDS. We focus on the several domains of learning such as social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development, motor skills, communication, language, literacy, and approaches learning by exploring and playing.
The Pre K Classroom has, for us, the newest, most exciting curriculum. Child Care Education Institute (CCEI) is proud to announce the review process for High Scope Curriculum has been completed and it will remain on the Georgia Approved Curriculum list for Georgia Pre-K.
High Scope is a research-based and child focused early childhood curriculum designed with both teachers and students in mind. The curriculum uses a carefully designed process- called- “active participatory learning”- to achieve powerful and positive outcomes. Based on the works of Piaget, Gardner, and Erikson, High Scope provides teachers with lessons that engage children in developmentally appropriate activities. High Scope is published in an easy-to-use, reusable format that includes lesson plan guides, activity enrichments, and long range goals linked to key standards.
High Scope Curriculum not only helps young children excel in language and cognitive learning, but also promotes curiosity, cooperation, creativity, persistence, and problem solving. The children also learn respect and independence by being allowed more responsibility with classroom duties. This curriculum brings in the pre-literacy, math, and science skills to prepare our Pre K children for Kindergarten. These are more ways we try to help prepare our children for the new world of elementary school.
Our School Age program offers fun and interactive exchanges between the children and staff. We offer assistance with homework during the school year as well as age appropriate activities for the children to participate in. We encourage the older children to mentor the younger children by example and also academically.
