Palm Valley Preschool utilizes a variety of curriculum implementations to support the development of the whole child; developmentally, socially-emotionally, and physically.
The California Preschool Learning Foundations is designed to promote an understanding of young children's development. The Foundations describe competencies—knowledge, and skills that are expected for each age group. While aligning with curricular framework and California state preschool learning foundations, teachers implement a variety of activities and lesson plans to support student development.
Second Step Learning curriculum is a Social-emotional program that helps students succeed in the classroom and throughout their lives. This multifaceted program provides an extra dimension to education, focusing on improving cooperation, problem resolution, communication, and decision-making.
To support our students’ physical development, Palm Valley Preschool incorporates the Outdoor classroom into our curriculum development. Incorporating the outdoor classroom into preschool education provides a dynamic and versatile learning environment that nurtures the physical, emotional, social, and cognitive growth of young children.
