Curriculum

   Our Wildcat Cubs Preschool proudly utilizes the Creative Curriculum, which is a developmentally sound program that provides hands-on and extensive learning opportunities for each child to actively explore. Our curriculum is aligned to the New Jersey Preschool Teaching and Learning Standards to create a well-rounded learning experience focusing on the following areas of early childhood development:

 

     1) language development (listening and speaking, reading and writing)

     2) social/emotional development (sense of self, responsibility for self and others, prosocial behavior)

     3) cognitive development (learning and problem solving. Logical thinking, representation and symbolic thinking)

     4) physical development (gross motor, fine motor)

 

   Through play, small non-static groups, and large group learning, our driving goal is to provide a learning environment that incorporates the many unique interests and abilities of each child, in turn fostering grand individual growth within and across all developmental areas. Embracing a positive connection with learning and their own wonderful abilities is key for a child to remain a successful, engaged, and dynamic, life-long learner. DTS Wildcat Cubs Preschool is a great way to start building that foundation!
