INSPIRATIONAL STEPS PROGRAM
The Inspirational steps program supports our curriculum of highly motivated activities that relate to monthly themes. Our thematic approach allows each child to build upon their current knowledge base and connect what they know with what they are learning. We recognize that children mature at different levels and they should be encouraged to work at their own pace as they progress towards annual goals. To help children accomplish this, we facilitate learning by the use of active and interactive methods. Once a concept has been introduced to children in this way, the second step involves extending and refining that concept – through repetition, practice, and play. The third step focuses on evaluating what has been learned and how children might use that knowledge in meaningful ways. By building on previously learned skills, children can be successful and can master one step at a time.
