From the Director
At Compass Christian Preschool, we set our curriculum by working with the local school districts. We look at their goals and guidelines for kindergarten and make adjustments as needed. I don’t feel that there is one all encompassing type of curriculum that can be used to meet all of the needs of the children. My background includes working in a Montessori school, a Bank Street Model School, a Creative Curriculum model school and NAEYC Lab School. I love so many components of all the curriculum we used at these schools and we use many of these components at CCP.
We use Handwriting Without Tears for our handwriting curriculum for all of the children in the school – ages 18 months to Transitional Kindergarten. The Get Set for School® curriculum helps young learners gain the skills and experiences they need for lifelong learning success. The hands-on curriculum focuses on the three core learning areas—readiness & writing, language & literacy, and numbers & math. This is accomplished by singing, dancing, coloring, building, and exploring.

Fall in love with music! Just as all children are born with the potential to learn to speak and understand their native language, all children are born with the potential to learn to “speak” and understand music. It is important to expose our children to lots of different types of music to develop their musical ear. In music, we dance to classical tunes, play instruments to jazz music, and sing traditional children tunes. This month we will have fun learning how to play rhythm sticks, sneakin’ around, and singing about that spider that never seems to be able to climb up that water spout!
