Our program philosophy is based on the premise that children learn about the world around them through active involvement with other children, adults, materials, and the environment. Children need years of experience with real objects and events before they are ready to understand the meaning of symbols such as letters and numbers. Learning takes place as young children touch, manipulate, and experiment with things and interact with people. The teacher's role is to create an environment that supports the ideas and experiences of children and invites them to observe, be active, make choices, and experiment.
The Dragonflies utilize the High Reach Learning Curriculum, a research-based curriculum. The primary goal of this method is to create learning conditions that help children develop these abilities through exposure to all matter of expressive, communicative, and cognitive experiences.
