Our Curriculum

The spirit of our center is its enriching curriculum. It is a theme-based integrated, curriculum implemented in wide range of ways appropriate for the children's age and their specific needs. Our curriculum is based on the High Scope model.

Classroom Arrangement

The arrangement of the learning environment affects almost everything the children do. It affects children's choices, their planning, their use of materials, and their relationship with their peers and staff. At supertots Educational Center we believe that children learn best in a stimulating but ordered environment in which they can make choices and act upon them. Therefore, our classrooms are divided in well-defined working areas with appropriate and locally organized materials the children can use independently.
