Our Curriculum

MLC teachers (except Infant teachers) build Weekly plans around units of study. Sample units are “My Family”, “I’m Special”, and “Colors”. The MLC uses developmental thoughts and practices in the daily curriculum. The curriculum involves children’s total experiences from the time they arrive at the MLC until they depart. Our program strives to provide a balance between group and individual activities, child-directed and teacher-directed activities, and more highly and more loosely structured activities. We believe that a child’s “work” is play. Children are given many opportunities in art, music, science, home living, blocks, puzzles/other manipulative activities and large motor skill activities to encourage their growth.

Infants through Pre Kindergarten use the High/Scope Curriculum. Children learn through direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas. The curriculum involves children’s total experiences from the time they arrive at Milestones until they depart.

Our Preschool is child-centered and designed to encourage each individual child to become an independent learner through constructive play that will form the foundation for your child’s educational success.

Daily schedules and weekly plans are posted in each classroom.

From time to time, pictures are made of the children as they participate in the MLC’s program. On occasions these pictures are posted in the classroom/the MLC or shared with parents.
