At Atira, we use an emergent curriculum, a play-based model that helps with school readiness. The emergent curriculum allows our educators to plan activities and programs based on the children’s interests and skill sets of the children enrolled at the time. Atira’s Early Childhood Educators take into consideration the environment within the programs and have small learning groups to keep children engaged. It is a collaborative approach between the children who initiate the process and the educators who know what is necessary for children’s education and development. Educators discuss what is observed in the classrooms and come up with plans and ideas around what to implement next. Some interests last one day, some can last months. Atira early year centers include the following learning areas in all lesson plans:
- Language and Literacy
- Physical, Social and Emotional Development
- Social Studies
