Core Curriculum in Albuquerque, NM
Early childhood education is a time to introduce your child to core curriculum in literacy, science and math. At Blue Bird, we do this through fun, educational and engaging activities. Learning through play is the best way to build the foundation for academic learning. We encourage the physical, emotional and social development of each child in our class. Our core curriculum is designed for children ages 2 to 5:
- Early Literacy—Letter recognition, letter sounds, writing shapes and letters, story time, children’s literature. Your child will learn to write his or her name. We foster a love of reading in your child by providing high-quality children’s literature.
- Earth Science—Introduction to the Scientific Method, hands-on experiments, understanding Earth Science. Science activities include safe experiments that help your child better understand the natural world.
- Math—Counting, sorting, grouping and comparisons are among the basic math skills we provide as part of our early childhood education. We strive to introduce math as a fun, dynamic subject that your child feels comfortable with.
- Music & Movement—Introducing your child to instruments & dance is a fun way to learn creativity and develop motor skills.
- Art—We promote creativity and encourage your child to express his or herself creatively. Introducing your child to the arts is a wonderful way to build confidence and independence.
As with all of our programs, we maintain our commitment to the well-being of your child through cognitive and social development. Cognitive development enhances your child’s brain development, including language learning, perception and motor skills. Social development encourages listening and understanding directions, and learning to work well in groups.
