Light Up the Winter Night is December 2, 2023 from 5-8 p.m.!
Our director, teachers, and parents share details about our mission, vision, curriculum, and program.
Our classroom brings a diverse representation of the world through our East Charlotte community. We have families from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Venezuela, Burma, Congo, Kenya, Italy, and Canada. Our sliding scale for tuition provides socioeconomic diversity as well.
Our global focus stems from the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are the basis of our units of study. Through these topics of equality, sustainability, innovation, and more, our teachers integrate critical thinking, literacy, the arts, and other components of the Creative Curriculum for Preschool.
We offer instruction in English and Spanish. Instruction is taught in English three days a week (M/W/F) and Spanish two days a week (T/Th). Two bilingual teachers (Ms. Maria & Ms. Irma) help reinforce communication in both languages.
We learn best from each other. Each week a student shares artifacts from their personal and cultural lives, bringing learning of the world to life (with help from family members to teach songs, recipes, & more!).
See what we are learning! These weekly newsletters contain information about our thematic curriculum, our person of the week, as well as home/school connections for learning and wellness.
At the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year, 84% of students scored below 50% of their peers on the Boehm Standard Table, which measures grasp of preschool concepts. At year’s end, 95% of our children achieved at a level well above most peers their age.
