The daily lesson plans revolve around a theme each month. The curriculum is on a three-year cycle, in which no theme repeats itself. Every year, curriculum is revised and updated based on current research and methodology.
Each activity or project suggested in the lesson plan book reinforces developmentally appropriate skills to help your child grow and learn. The primary learning objective of each activity is listed next to each activity in the lesson plan book. Mother Goose Time provides our teachers with tips on how to adapt recommended activities throughout the lesson plan to embrace the unique learning style and skill level of each child.
