Our curriculum is student-driven. This simply means that our projects will be based on the children's interests throughout the year. A project may change in two days, or last a month. We believe that art, music, reading, math, science, and social studies, should be taught throughout the day, but within the spectrum of ideas that interest the children, versus pre-planned themes scheduled for the year.
Manchester will follow Kansas Early Learning Standards from infant-pre-kindergarten.
We will have natural playgrounds that include an outdoor art studio and natural items for play such as logs, hills, slides, gardens, and a playhouse to mix mud pies and whatever the children's imagination can create.
All classrooms will have video monitoring so parents can log in with their smartphones or computers and see what their little ones are up to!
*We are hoping to open our school by the end of November '12, but it will all be in the hands of licensing. Our program will be full-time for year 1, (7:00 am-5:30 pm) and then we will open a 1/2 day preschool classroom next September, 2013.
