Children actively explore the materials around them, engage in activities appropriate to their skill level, and expand their natural curiosity.  Our Early Childhood development curriculum programs are aligned with the California Preschool Learning Foundations/Framework. The curriculum is designed to build on each child’s strength and target skills that need development.
