Primer Program in Bethlehem for kids three and older.
It is most beneficial for a child's first school experiences to be robust, stimulating, and individualized to best develop their imagination, problem-solving skills, critical thinking, social relationships, empathy, and a life-long passion for learning.
Moravian Academy's teachers embrace the great task of nurturing a student's interests while offering tangible experiences that promote competency and build skills in the context of daily routines, play, planned lessons, and guided exploration. These learning opportunities positively impact the whole child. Therefore, cognitive development, social and emotional development, language development, and physical development are nurtured daily.
The curriculum for three-year-olds introduces all core subjects taught starting in prekindergarten including language arts, math, science and social studies. The learning is presented to children using a variety of sensory experiences that are blended throughout their daily experiences. Since young children learn by doing, playing, building, listening, and imaginative exploration, art and music are the primary mediums through which students explore all subjects, learning about themselves and others in the process.
Thematic units are used to expose children to concepts including seasons, calendar, numerical understanding, the world around them and cultures beyond. Most of the goals of this program represent process rather than isolated skills, therefore, mastery is reflected along a continuum of growth. This allows children the opportunity to experience satisfaction with their own developmental ability and builds a foundation of self-confidence and success for their futures. (less)... Read more
