What your child will learn:
Grounded in the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework, the “Explorations Units” provide instructional opportunities for 3-K for All teaching staff, children, and families to connect, explore materials, and learn together. Explorations invite engagement in comprehensive, in-depth, play-based learning across domains. Topics and activities in Explorations begin with routines and the classroom community then progress to more abstract ideas throughout the year.
At St. Demetrios, we believe that symbolic languages such as painting, sculpting, writing etc. offer endless possibilities to children to express their thinking and understanding of the world around them.
Our 3-K program encourages and promotes all of the multifaceted ways in which children interpret and represent their ideas and circumstances they face in their daily lives.
The three Explorations are designed to be implemented in 3-K for All classrooms over the course of the ten-month program year.
Exploration One: Our Community
Exploration Two: Our Environment
Exploration Three: Our Impact
