Education

Curriculum

We have taken two major new concepts in education and adapted them to fit our curriculum. One is focused on behavior management and one on learning.

Conscious Discipline

Conscious Discipline is a collection of skills taught to children to help decrease the incidences of power struggles, aggression, yelling, and behaviors related to frustration. By teaching a child how to self-regulate their behaviors, classroom management is easier for the teachers and all of the students.

The skills are taught in the classroom and implemented in times of conflict. Based on problem-solving, the seven principles of Conscious Discipline are:
Composure
Encouragement
Assertiveness
Choices
Positive Intent
Empathy
Consequences

These skills can also be empowering at home, within a family.

The Reggio Emilia Approach

Small World Pre-School has based its curriculum on the Italian Reggio Emilia approach to learning. The basic principle is that young children are curious. Instead of teaching lessons that require memorization, the classes are flexible and enhance and encourage ongoing learning and curiosity.

The teachers, students, and environment all come together to produce learning. The child’s role is the initiator and communicator of the learning. The teacher is the nurturer and guide. The environment provides the resources for the child and teacher to fully explore the learning. This approach is designed to create a lifelong love of learning.
