Foundations of Learning
Elementary School Readiness
Build our students' confidence and desire to learn.
Social Emotional Learning
We guide our students with understanding and managing emotions.
Our curriculum is developmentally appropriate to engage and challenge our students.
STEAM is an acronym that stands for:
Our STEAM-based curriculum explores all concepts through picture and nonfiction books, hands-on activities, and project-based learning. We are teaching our students that science is a way of thinking through observation, asking question and experiments.
MyPlace's STEAM-based activities helps our children become better problem solvers, innovators, and logical thinkers. Our teachers keep students engaged and excited through educational games, creative art, and age-appropriate engineering projects.
Project-based learning stimulates students in hands-on activities that allows them to build their own knowledge and explore their creativity. It provides our learners the opportunity to connect the activities they do at MyPlace with the world around them. We encourage students to ask questions and find solutions by collaborating with their peers.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
We invite family and community helpers to talk about the work they do.
We send out a theme-based MyPlace family craft activity so we can share with our family.
We share what we learned as we create our firefighter hats.
We read books about community helpers.
We program our robots to repair our themed-based vocabulary words.
Sign Language & Spanish Lessons
Early childhood is a wonderful time to introduce Sign Language and Spanish to children.
We start sign language classes as early as our infant program. During circle time, we explore new worlds through music and movement, reading books, and group activities.
Bringing Literacy to Life
MyPlace Foundations of Learning also focuses on pre-reading skills. Our goal is for our students to fall in love with literacy. Learners will discover the basics of letters and sounds and grow to write their thoughts and experiences in their journal.
We do many S.T.E.A.M. related activities such as:
Story time with Tonies
Simple Coding with Ozobot and QOBO the Snail
