Our center is a full-care, full-year PreSchool for Two, Three and Four year olds.
Creative Curriculum - “The Creative Curriculum approach to teaching and learning balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children’s learning styles and building on their strengths and interest. “(The Creative Curriculum 4th Edition) Teachers at GSS “guide the children in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology without neglecting children’s social/emotional development.”
Handwriting Without Tears - This curriculum prepares children for kindergarten in a developmentally appropriate way. It will help children get set for school by helping them develop coloring, drawing, counting, and beginning writing skills.
Conscious Discipline – Our teachers use Conscious Discipline to build social and emotional skills and develop discipline within children. This program is research based that helps children learn to self-regulate, help make better choices, and empathize with others. Conscious Discipline builds stronger connections within the classrooms, school, and family by teaching us to stay in control of our emotions and creating a safe environment for our children. This is the only program that integrates classroom management with social-emotional learning, uses everyday events as part of the schools established curriculum, and addresses the adult as well as the child.
