Our curriculum, based on New York State's Pre-Kindergarten Learning Standards, and starting with NYS's Early Learning Guidelines, forms the basis for our child-centered programs.
Greentrees follows New York State recommended curricula. Toddler children (age 2) through Kindergarten take part in challenging school activities in a stimulating and creative environment. The curriculum forms the basis of the child-centered learning program at Greentrees. Your child will acquire the rudiments of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. Inside every classroom, you will see children at play; initiating activities, and testing their skills, while they learn about social interaction.
Our approach promotes independence, curiosity, decision making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving — the fundamental skills that help determine success in adult life. In a Greentrees' classroom, carefully selected staff members are highly trained, sensitive, enthusiastic and dedicated. The teaching staff facilitates an enriching, nurturing classroom environment where learning through discovery begins a lifelong love of education.
Ultimately, we strive to find the "sweet-spot" between kindergarten preparedness, and an approach to learning that values how children learn best... through hands-on, discovery-based experiences; creating a lifelong love of learning.
