Curriculum Components

 

The classrooms at International Learning Center are arranged to promote active learning. The room is divided into interest areas organized around specific kinds of play. The curriculum is planned to help children build a solid foundation for future learning. Each child’s current level of competencies is noted and activities are provided that closely match his or her current level of understanding while providing stepping stones to higher levels of knowledge and skills.

 

The curriculum is built around activities that enhance growth in six main areas:

 

  • Language and Literacy

  • Knowledge Acquisition and Cognitive Skills Development

  • Emotional Development and Social Competency

  • Physical Well-Being and Motor Development

  • Music and Movement

  • Creativity
