Curriculum at The Tot Spot includes the child-initiated and teacher-directed activities and experiences offered to young children that support and enrich their development physically, emotionally, socially, and cognitively. The Tot Spot uses the Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers and Twos and the Creative Curriculum for Preschool as guides for planning the curriculum in each of its program rooms. Each classroom has weekly lesson plans, posted in the classroom. These plans contain a number of activities, designed to foster each child’s development, and the development of the group as a whole. Lesson plans may be changed in order to accommodate the children’s changing interests.
Each classroom is set-up in centers, which include art or music, math or numbers, dramatic play, stories and books, science or nature, block building or stacking, tactile or sensory activity, and multi-cultural exposure. Outdoor play is important to a child’s physical development and must be included in daily schedule. Self- selection or “free-play” is a daily part of the curriculum and means a child has the opportunity to choose which center or activity he/she participates in. This promotes creative expression and development of important social skills.
