program

The SGP preschool program will continue to build upon the infant program by offering
an emergent, responsive and developmentally appropriate curriculum through which the
children in our care can learn, explore, and thrive together through positive interactions
with peers and teachers. The program will celebrate the “whole child” in an integrated
approach that values social, emotional, language, cognitive and physical development
as equally important. The teachers will be given the autonomy necessary to incorporate
children’s interests, contributions, ideas and needs as well as parent input and
preferences into the planning process and daily experiences of children. The daily
schedule will alternate between large and small group activities, child-initiated/directed
and more adult-guided activities to share control of the day, and between passive and
active activities.
