Our Part Day Preschool offers a curriculum that is play-based or “child-centered.” We encourage children to be actively involved in the learning process through developmentally appropriate activities and materials that develop concepts in science, language, mathematics, art, music, self-help skills, social skills and literacy. We invite children to learn by using the center approach. Centers enable children to make choices and learn by active exploration of materials and activities. We provide small and large group activities so that children learn to develop social skills to include sharing, waiting for one’s turn, listening to others and verbalizing their feelings and knowledge of the world around them. Time is also provided for large motor skills, group times, music and stories.
Early Learning Matters
Coming in September 2018 Air Force Child Development Programs will be implementing a new curriculum for preschoolers with infant and toddler implementation in early 2019.

ELM offers a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate approach to meaningful learning for all children.
