Our curriculum is designed by the educators at CLCLV and is Theme/Art based. We partner with EASD and Nazareth Area School District along with utilizing PA Early Learning Standards to establish appropriate curriculum to prepare each child for higher education. We utilize child observations along with the child’s interest to help plan and guide the development of each child. Assessment tools used are OUNCE Scale and Work Sampling and or Ages and Stages. Educators will conduct assessments throughout the school year to determine the needs of each child. We connect with parents in Curriculum by Daily Sheets to parents; we post Lesson Plans and Parent Teacher Conferences throughout the school year.
Our Classrooms are set up in learning centers based on the key learning areas where children can be guided to work independently resulting in successful discovery which begins to develop positive self-image.
Our Environment is center based which allows the children to independently work and develop skills; based on the Montessori Method each child is encouraged to work at his/her own pace and will build self esteem by conquering the challenges of the work that is presented in each learning center.
Educators at CLCLV with a background in Early Childhood Education or a related field use their education and expertise to teach young children. Each educator is trained annually based on DPW and Keystone Stars guidelines.
