In our efforts to value each child and demonstrate God’s love to each one, the staff members observe and collaborate together to determine and follow the children’s interests. Hence, our curriculum is not necessarily theme oriented; rather the children’s interests drive it. Children’s development in all areas is greatly enhanced when they are interested in what they are learning. Staff members collaborate together to determine interests and provide provocations to either determine interest or extend an interest.
In this setting, problem solving by the children is valued and the teachers act as mediators, asking questions to help solve conflicts and aid in understanding. All children participate fully in the daily program, regardless of ability. All staff members are responsible for and interact with all children, regardless of ability. The family is valued as the expert of their child and the family’s input is expected and valued by the staff team.
Cherub's Inn Daycare has embraced the principles of emergent curriculum. Emergent curriculum is based on the premise that children are most successful at learning when curriculum experiences account for their interests, strengths, needs, and lived realities.
To this end, Cherub’s Inn is set up with learning stations/centers. These include, art, sand and water play, dramatic play, housekeeping, science language and more. Each learning center is intentional in assisting the children with individual developmental needs. Learning becomes fun and engaging as teachers focus on interests and passions of the children.
(Note: Schedule is subject to change based on children's interest, energy level and weather. Additionally, although the schedules are similar for both the 3-5 program and Multi- age there are some differences.)
