Blended Learning

Young children learn best in the context of relationships and through play and engaging hands-on activities. In early childhood classrooms, the relationships children develop with their teaching teams and caregivers are crucial to their development and learning. Additionally, the toys, games, and other materials in their classrooms support discovery and exploration – an essential component of early learning. At home, families, caregivers, and children build on those explorations by engaging in joyful, fun play and activities that build on children’s natural curiosity. With this in mind, the focus of blended learning for children ages 0-5 is centered around building connections between in-classroom and at home experiences.

Remote Learning

Young children learn best in the context of relationships and through play-based, hands-on, and engaging activities. In their early childhood classrooms, the relationships they develop with their teaching teams and caregivers are crucial to their development and learning. Additionally, the toys, games, and other materials in their classrooms support discovery and exploration – an essential component of early learning. For these reasons, remote learning for young children is centered around helping families, caregivers, and children connect and engage in joyful, fun, play-based activities that build on children’s natural curiosity.
