Windham Northeast Supervisory Union’s Early Education Center will provide a healthy, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate environment in which children can grow intellectually, emotionally, and physically. We will support children’s learning through play, providing play experiences that allow children to develop and accumulate their own knowledge. We will provide educational opportunities that inspire children to create, explore, and ask questions. The Early Education Center is a safe and positive learning environment where each child’s self-esteem and uniqueness will be supported.
The curriculum at Windham Northeast Supervisory Union’s Early Education Center is continually evaluated so that we are meeting the needs of each and every child. The curriculum is designed for three to five year olds with different levels of maturity, ability, attention span, interests, and experiences. We build on children’s strengths to expand all aspects of their growth and development.
Our approach to teaching children is based on the premise that all children learn through play. Every experience is a learning opportunity for a child. We provide children with an environment to explore, investigate, and be active in their own learning. All activities are informal, non-competitive and rewarding. This reinforces to children that learning is fun.
Children at the Early Education Center are encouraged to draw upon their strengths as they develop a positive self-image. Our goal in this approach to teaching is to prepare children for a lifelong love of learning. We will be working to support our students to enter kindergarten, and the rest of their school years, as eager, confident learners.
