The Lois Bronz Children’s Center individualizes curriculum based on observation and in-depth assessment of each child. The curriculum s designed to address all areas of competency including: language, cognitive social/emotional and physical development. The heart of our educational program is the continuous growth and learning of each child. Our goal is to ensure that each childleaves the Lois Bronz Children's Centerthe skillsto achieve and excelacademically, emotionally and socially.
Literacy is an integral component of our curriculum and daily activities at the center. For the youngest children, we provide sensory stimulation and development of communication skills using "Baby Signs", verbal interaction, and reading aloud. In the pre-school classes, the children are introduced to letters and numbers, and encouraged to read, write and communicate verbally. We use various approaches to learning through the arts, books, music and dramatic play to stimulate each child’s receptive and expressive language.
