Kid's Korner Curriculum

Curriculum Outline

Curriculum Standards for your child

Our teacher's teach in ways that match how children develop and learn. We do this by integrating and practicing skills and prior knowledge that supports the children's academic, social, emotional, physical, cognitive, language and communication, nutritional, cultural, and educational progress.

To best facilitate the curriculum, Kid's Korner creates a monthly theme, which is utilized throughout the center, to enhance and incorporate appropriate practices for all ages. From this theme, each classroom has individualized lesson plans implemented on a weekly basis. In turn, our entire center creates and utilizes a variety of mediums and methods to empower children to succeed and grow.  Our teacher’s utilize individual Portfolios which includes Authentic Observation for each child, creating the foundation for our Lesson Plans.

Services & Rates

Infants staff to child ratio: 1:3
At Kid's Korner, your child's teacher becomes an extension of your family, opening opportunities for your infant to do what comes naturally...discover and explore. There are a number of developmental categories that our teachers work on daily to evaluate and support your baby's progress.

In addition, infants are introduced to Baby sign language. Families will receive weekly newsletters that highlight your baby's classroom activities as well as daily reports. Diapers, wipes, solid foods, infant cereal, and most iron-fortified formulas are provided for your child. We encourage breast-feeding as it is a vitally important bonding time with your baby.
