We Are AnAccredited Program

Our Curriculum

Curriculum sets the tone for the entire school year and is basically a road map to what a child will be learning for the entire academic year.

Infants to K5

Music education helps accelerate brain development in young children, particularly in the areas of the brain responsible for processing sound, language development, speech perception and reading skills.
Physical activity has been found to make parts of our brain larger and stronger, allowing us to catch on quicker during a lesson and expand our creativity. One common observation among researchers remains the improvement of mental performance after exercise.
The hippocampus acts as a facilitator of information, including having a hand in new brain cell growth. Exercise stimulates the growth of brain cells as well as the hippocampus itself, the hippocampus grew stronger when fitness improved.
Many early tantrums in toddlers are often a result of their inability to communicate their wants and needs. By giving a child the gift of sign language as an early communication tool, you may see a decrease in tantrum behavior as he will be able to communicate to you more effectively than with speech and gesture alone.
The repetition, both auditory and visually,  may help to expand a child’s receptive and expressive vocabulary and language skills.
There is research to support that hearing children who are taught sign language from an early age have better reading and spelling skills and yes, even higher IQ scores down the road.

2 years to K5

The ability to learn a second language is highest between birth and the age of six, then undergoes a steady and inexorable decline.” (Nash, 1997).
In today’s society, especially in the United States, having the ability to speak Spanish can be greatly beneficial in one’s personal and professional lifestyle.
By learning Spanish at a young age, a child can grow up appreciating a different culture in a way that adults wouldn’t expect
