Curriculum

Teaching a curriculum that is relevant and engaging is the key to success. Through a series of programs, we teach reading, mathematics, science, handwriting and social skills. St. Clement’s Early Learning School takes a balanced approach to table work and academic learning. We believe children need to be challenged daily at a level appropriate to the individual child.

Our continuing commitment to a small class size enables children to make choices to solve problems and to learn to think independently. The SCELS curriculum is carefully designed with the understanding that each child is unique. Therefore, every child at SCELS has an individual program plan created through ongoing assessment and observation by the classroom teacher(s). As a result, we provide our students with engaging learning experiences aimed at building and enhancing their skills in all developmental areas. Our goal is to create a total learning environment where all the children of St. Clement’s Early Learning School experience educational success.
