What makes A Child’s World different?
The latest studies of the brain are giving educators tremendous insight into how we can create optimal learning environments for our children. Studies now show that areas of the brain are stimulated and developed with specific activities, different environmental stimuli and the effect our emotions have on our mind and body. The arts and physical activity in learning energize the body and the mind while increasing intellectual potential.
A Child’s World provides children with the optimal learning environment they need to succeed.
Brain-Based Teaching Methods
Exclusive Living Education Series Curriculum Implemented according to the Unique 4BELS Instructional Process.
The 4 Brain Essential Learning Steps (4BELS) of the Living Education Series is a consistent instructional approach used to teach children curricular content that is reinforced and retained through their interpretations and applications of the materials. The 4BELS can be used with any topic, theme or learning unit and is research based. Teachers are engaged in ongoing professional development that allows them to create an intellectually stimulating environment that helps children develop lifelong essential skills. The learning environment and instructional style is individualized to adapt to every child’s unique learning style. A Child’s World promotes an integration of all subjects: Language Arts, Math, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Social Studies are taught alongside the arts, music, and physical education. Children are introduced to a variety of ways to communicate, including sign language and foreign languages. Tactile art, music, and movement programs enrich curricular content for all age levels. A Child World’s schools are designed with age-appropriate classrooms equipped with learning stations and exploration centers.
Brain Exercises and Yoga
The children’s day begins with brain exercises and yoga movement. These exercises relax the brain to better access cognitive awareness for maximum focus. Yoga movements connect body and mind to reinforce concentration readiness.
STEM – The Integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math
Science experiments and literacy exploration engage children in the wonders of our environments both locally and globally
Technology brings the knowledge of the world into the children’s classrooms with iPads, computers, projectors, and screens. Children can visually experience curricular topics up-close. They develop technology skills that are valuable throughout grade school and college
Children develop skills that relate to architectural design, to building structures, and to exploring and creating their own original inventions
Fine motor skills are developed and math concepts come alive with activities, materials, and games for maximum math readiness opportunities and fine motor skill development.
The Musical Minds™ Living Education© curriculum engages children in the learning process in a way that integrates the basic skills of reading, math, social studies and the sciences into themes that are relevant and meaningful to their lives. It is common for our children to graduate from A Child’s World kindergarten program with the ability to read at a second or third grade level, and with a comparatively advanced understanding of mathematical concepts. A Child’s World builds essential skills and develops important cognitive assets for lifelong success.
