Enhanced Links to Learning Curriculum Coming in September
Our Links to Learning curriculum has long been an industry leader in developmentally appropriate, comprehensive early childhood education. When you visit our preschools, you’ll see the richness of literacy, mathematics, multisensory learning and innovative opportunities for creativity and exploration. Links to Learning has received numerous commendations from accreditation agencies and continues to provide students a thorough, high-quality preparation for entrance to kindergarten.
The Education team here at Nobel Learning Communities stays up to date on the latest research to ensure that Links to Learning exceeds early childhood learning standards. We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve just completed another cycle of curriculum renewal which will add even more dimension and depth to our programs. Starting in September, you will see the following enhancements in your child’s classroom:
Language and Literacy
Language and literacy remain the foundation of our curriculum. We’ve built upon our already high standards by exposing children to a variety of early childhood literature, strengthening verbal and non-verbal skills in our infant and toddler programs, and implementing a research-based approach to handwriting development.
We continue to provide children with hands-on experiences that focus on problem-solving and critical thinking as we delve deeper into number concepts, basic data interpretation and analysis.
Our social-emotional component helps children learn about sharing with others and respecting each other’s feelings. We’ve expanded this program to include a deeper focus on character education, peer interaction skills and classroom etiquette.
Our wellness program continues to focus on health and fitness by developing mobility, balance and fine motor skills. We’ve enhanced this program by embedding a stronger focus on nutrition and safety.
Science and Social Studies
We’ve amplified our science and social studies curriculum to include more fun and meaningful activities that connect students to their natural and social environments. In science, students practice observation and participate in hands-on experiments. In social studies, students study community helpers and share different family traditions.
Another exciting enrichment to Links to Learning is the expansion of our creative expression program. Children will continue to explore a variety of artwork and art techniques, but will also learn about well-known, child-appropriate artists past and present. This dual focus on art and the artist will also be used in music, as children learn to differentiate between different genres and the musicians associated with them.
Citizens of the World
Spanish will still be integrated throughout the day to give children a head start on mastering a second language. Beginning this fall, we’re also including a greater concentration on multiculturalism and the recognition of each child’s own family, culture and traditions.
Our digital interactions program is brand new this fall for our Intermediate and Pre-K programs. Students will learn about different types and uses of technology, terminology relevant in this digital age, and how to express themselves creatively using technology as a tool.
We are thrilled to share these new enhancements with you, and are confident that they will help your child continue to grow, flourish and learn skills that will help them in kindergarten and beyond.
