LITTLE BRITCHES uses the following age and developmentally appropriate curriculum: Foundations for Success, HighReach Learning and Links to Literacy. Teacher read books and individually read books (reading/pretend reading) are central to the curriculum.
The infants, one-year old and two-year old classes use the Foundations for Success curriculum, which focuses on four foundational areas which are necessary for supporting infant and toddler development. The foundational areas start with Relationships as the center point surrounded by learning in Senses & Perception, Movement, and Language; where learning occurs by interacting with the environment creating crucial brain building experiences. Music experience is also interlaced as an additional part of the Foundations for Success curriculum.
In addition, the two-year old classes use the HighReach Learning program which provides a rich learning environment that develops self-regulation, cognitive skills and expands vocabulary. This curriculum encompasses the whole child’s development: cognitive, social, and physical.
The three-year old, four-year old and VPK classrooms use Links to Literacy. The program was designed to help children become ready for Kindergarten, with a special emphasis on language and literacy development. The curriculum is based on recognized national and state school performance readiness standards, Duval County School Readiness Performance Standards, and is aligned with the Head Start Child Outcomes.
