Preschool through Pre-Kindergarten
Beyond Centers and Circle Time®
VPK approved! The Beyond Centers and Circle Time® Curriculum is a play based approach that has been successfully used for over thirty years with typically and atypically developing children. This curriculum teaches adults how to understand children’s play, and provide rich, well planned and organized play opportunities. When adults recognize the stages of children’s play they are able to appropriately scaffold the play experiences so that children reach their full potential.
Based upon years of developmental research and appropriate learning theory, this curriculum has been carefully designed to be used in preschool classrooms and includes time-proven successful practices. This curriculum is academically enriched, reinforcing cognitive skill development, science, math, language, and social studies, through meaningful content around standards of learning.
***We have a comprehensive assessment system for evaluating your child’s developmental progress and this helps to ensures parent involvement. We have parent-teacher conferences twice yearly to review these assessments.***
