The Curriculum

Child and teacher reading together

Our Research Based Approach

Our curriculum is based in the latest developmental theories and research, showing what children need to flourish in the first 5 years. Educare is focused on continual improvement, analyzing the impacts of our lesson planning, and innovating educational strategies to bolster each child’s growth and create a lasting positive impact on every family that attends.  

 Our Areas of Focus

  • Social and emotional learning – Educare programs create a safe and nurturing classroom environment that promotes cooperation, collaboration, and social development in children. We proactively address each child’s behavior leading to stronger classroom relationships and greater academic achievement. 
  • Innovative teaching – Educare classrooms utilize the most up-to-date and innovative approaches to teaching. Incorporating new programs like Math All Around Me and the Erikson Institute’s Language and Literacy Initiative are just two examples of the new teaching approaches Educare utilizes to engage our early learners. 
  • Highly qualified staff – Each of our classrooms consists of a Lead Teacher, Teacher Assistant, and Teacher Aide to ensure that each child gets the individual attention they need. We institute high hiring standards for each member of our staff and require continuing professional development to ensure they are up to date with the latest research-based teaching methodology.
