Curriculum

  1. FCCCP’s uses the HORIZONS Curriculum to plan and provide developmentally appropriate activities to enhance the child’s whole development, such as:
    A. Monthly & Weekly Unit Study Themes
    B. Excursions such as… Walks around immediate community to learn about things and people around them; and/or by bus transportation to learn about other communities and people.
    C. School Readiness Skill Building & Hands-On Activities involving the following Learning Centers: Pre-Math; Language
    (Pre-Reading, Pre-Writing; Speech); Science, Art, Music and Movement; Blocks; Manipulative; and Home Living.
    (Please Note: FCCCP advocates developmentally appropriate, hands-on learning. We believe that children learn in the context of play. Written worksheets and “drills” are sometimes used as a teaching method in our preschool. )
    D. Variety of Outdoor Activities
  2. The FCCCP Lead Teacher plans and provides the developmentally appropriate learning activities focused on weekly or monthly themes.
    A. To develop the children’s interest, understanding, and skills in language; science; math; social, emotional, gross and fine motor control; spiritual emphasis; art; and music.
    B. The FCCCP Director reviews each Lead Teacher’s Lesson Plan on a weekly basis.

    • Center activities may be used repeatedly since children master skills through repetition and play.
    • All planned classroom and school activities are subject to change in keeping with the daily interests and needs of the children and the operation of FCCCP.
