Our Curriculum

Infant to Preschool

We use Frog Street’s early childhood programs, which offer a specific curriculum for every age and every stage of development from birth to age 5. The curriculum in our preschool, childcare, and daycare programs is built on four key cornerstones: early brain development research, intentional instruction, developmental learning domains, and social and emotional development emphasis.
