NBCC’s curriculum is designed to enhance children’s natural developmental progression.
Our curriculum is play-based and child-focused.
Our teachers observe children to determine interests, curiosities, and developmental needs, letting curriculum ideas emerge. Children are offered an environment that fosters growth in all areas of development – body, mind and spirit. Play is the method by which children explore their world, construct knowledge and grow.
While daily schedules differ between programs and age levels, all rooms have free-choice time. We have many areas of interest in each room that emphasize on large and small muscle activities, dramatic play, quiet centers for individual book exploration, literacy, art, and music. Children can engage in indoor and outdoor play, large and small group times for stories, sing songs and build relationships. Each room encourages learning as a natural consequence of exploring life as it happens.
