Curriculum and Philosophy
Our curriculum at Learn 'N Playday encompasses all aspects of a child's development. The best way to teach children is to build on play and their natural learning styles. Play is a child's work! Teaching through play allows a child to be curious, enthusiastic, and interested in what is being taught each day.  Our teachers use thematic teaching as a means to teach your child something new and exciting each week. Classroom activities are then focused around this theme, which makes learning fun, enjoyable, and concepts easier to understand.

Children need the freedom to experiment, explore, try things out, and to make choices. To help foster this, each classroom is divided into at least 10 different learning centers, each one focusing on different skills and interests. All of these centers teach skills that the children will eventually need to enter kindergarten and beyond. Centers include Technology (ipads, SMART board, computers), Literacy, Math 'N Manipulatives, Science, Blocks and Building, Home Living, Discovery, Water, Creative Art, and Writing.

Our curriculum incorporates goals from the Texas Pre-kindergarten Guidelines as established by the Texas Education Agency. These guidelines include goals in the following areas: Language and Early Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Health and Safety, Personal and Social Development, Physical Development, and Technology. We also use the Frog Street Press Curriculum in all classrooms.

While striving towards these goals, we know that your child will be able to blossom emotionally and intellectually in a loving and nurturing environment; an environment that promotes socialization, develops self-help skills, and encourages emotional and cognitive development. When we use he above mentioned guidelines, children will become independent learners who are excited about learning. They will have a strong foundation, confidence in their abilities, and lifelong skills that will help them continue to learn.
