Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum is based on the Emergent Curriculum. It is an approach to early childhood education that focuses on the interests and experiences of each child.


Rather than following a predetermined curriculum, teachers observe and respond to what the children are naturally curious about, building on their interests to create learning opportunities.



Prescribed learning outcomes play a key role in tracking and measuring student progress. This ensures that students get much-needed feedback and support while encouraging their continued growth and learning.

  • Emily brought a cricketing a glass jar to school. Her classmates were fascinated. So, the teacher then let the kids draw pictures of the cricket so they would notice the finer details of its body structure.

  • Tim is obsessed with cheetahs because they run so fast. So, his teacher showed him how to use a stopwatch. Soon, all the students were timing how fast they can run.


Redwood Early Childhood Education® separates our curriculum between core courses and secondary courses.


Core courses are the well-established building blocks of all education, and help our children flourish into functional members of society that can direct and build the future.


Our core courses are Math, Reading, Writing, and Science. Our secondary courses are Social Studies, Second Language, Music, ToastMasters, and Yoga. These courses enrich a child’s learning experiences and add to the foundation of the core courses.


We aim to build a framework for understanding what numbers mean by creating number sense, using tools like IXL, Number Sense Routines, Math through Art, Workstations, and Beebots. Math will also teach the fundamentals for chess. This helps children develop analytical and decision-making skills, as well as the ability to recognize complex patterns.


Synthetic Phonics is a Reading program with a balanced approach that integrates reading, writing, spelling, and phonemic awareness in conjunction with relevant language activities.


We teach using Handwriting Without Tears (HWT), an established approach that addresses different learning styles with developmentally appropriate lessons that break down difficult concepts into simple tasks.


Our Science program implements STEM Education, which incorporates science, technology, engineering, and mathematics knowledge in the play experiences of children. Science will also include coverage of Food Sciences and Nutrition, taught by our Chef.

Second Language

The second language is taught through story, music, rhymes, finger plays, movement, and sensory experiences. Children are given tangible experiences that help them link new words to actual experiences.


Our Orff-inspired program is designed to introduce our children to instruments, melody, rhythm, and pitch while learning music through ear (hearing).

Toast Masters

The goal of our program is to provide the children with opportunities to practice their public speaking skills, establish polite and socially acceptable etiquette, and understand the importance of being a member of a community that respects the opinions and ideas of others.


A play-based approach to Yoga at Redwood encourages children to take calculated risks while engaging the body and mind. The class will include yoga postures and stories, breathing exercises, and meditation.

  • How does it work?
    Cameras are installed throughout the school in classrooms, playgrounds, and some common areas. The video is streamed live over the internet and parents have secure, individual usernames and passwords that give them video access to the areas where their children learn and play. They watch video from their desktop computers, or use the WatchMeGrow™ app from their phone or tablet.
  • Can anyone log in to see a classroom?
    No. You must be the approved parent of a currently enrolled child to use the system. To get access, parents of enrolled children sign up for WatchMeGrow™. Administrators at the childcare center approve them before they can have access. If there are out-of-town grandparents or deployed parents who wish to use it, parents can set up additional access for them as sub-users on their accounts. Only families of children in a classroom have access to view that classroom. It is at the center’s discretion which areas users can view, such as the child’s classroom, common areas, and playgrounds
  • Why have you chosen to use WatchMeGrow™ Streaming Video?
    We are extending our open-door policy beyond the walls of our building. We want parents of children in our care to be confident knowing that their child’s safety, well-being, and education is our top priority. WatchMeGrow™ allows parents and grandparents to stay connected to their children while they’re here, and to rest assured knowing that they’ve placed their children in the best care possible.

  • Is it safe?
    Yes. All data is encrypted. To watch streaming video through WatchMeGrow™, you must be approved by your childcare center. WatchMeGrow™ is the only streaming video service for childcare that provides this level of security.
  • Why would parents want to use streaming video to watch their child?
    Answers vary for every individual. Many parents like the comfort of knowing they can see the fun their child is having in their classroom during the day. Some parents set up accounts for out-of-town grandparents to stay connected to little ones in our care. Parents who are deployed as active-duty military for long durations rely on streaming video to follow what their children are doing while away. Others find it helpful to check in on their child during their first day in our care or simply use it to check in when their child is having an “off” day.
