We believe children are:
Providence Learning Center is based on the child development model which incorporates the theories of Jean Piaget, Montessori, Erikson, and others. Learning through play is viewed as the cornerstone of the curriculum. Adults provide protection, security, stimulation, support, limits, and affection. Children are respected as individuals within a child-oriented rather than teacher-directed program.
At Providence, children are given the opportunity to explore materials and participate in a variety of experiences. Children are free to choose from age appropriate activities including art, music, language development, pre-math skills, science and nature, and dramatic play. Children develop self-esteem, independence, and problem solving skills as they make choices and assist in planning the environment and the activities.
We recognize that children develop at different rates and have different interests, with this in mind, small group size and appropriate teacher-child ratios allow for meeting the individual needs of each child.
While there are many well-respected curricula in circulation, we believe it is imperative to design a scope and sequence with lesson planning geared towards a specific set of students. "Big-box" curriculum kits do not accomplish this goal.
Providence uses an original and one-of-a-kind curriculum that has been researched, developed, and refined by a team of certified Texas teachers for over thirty years. We are extremely knowledgeable on what it takes for a child to succeed in the Texas school system, and we pride ourselves in providing the best Kindergarten preparation for your child.
