At TNS we use a variety of curriculums to meet the developmental needs of the children we serve.  Presented are the 4 main curriculums used.

  • Project based learning: using real-world scenarios, challenges, and problems, students gain useful knowledge and skills that increase during their designated project Time.
    The goal of using complex questions or problems is to develop and enhance student learning by encouraging critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and self-management. The project’s proposed question drives students to make their own decisions, perform their own research with guidance, and review and discuss their work.

  • Creative Curriculum:  Provides a researched evidence-based, whole-child approach to project-based learning and developmentally appropriate learning infants through kindergarten .Through  investigations of science and social studies topics that integrate literacy and mathematics and social emotional concepts into everyday instruction, educators can encourage all children to think critically, solve problems, and connect ideas.

  • Learning without Tears:  Handwriting is a foundational skill that leads students to automatic word recognition.  With letter formation, students embark on the pathway to reading and writing excellence while connecting letters to sound and fortifying the alphabetic principle. This allows students to build deeper knowledge and vocabulary about a variety of topics while enhancing phonics and word study skills. Children will work on Phonemic awareness, high frequency words and automatic word recognition.

  • 2nd. Steps Social Emotional Learning: Children need social-emotional skills to thrive both in the classroom and in life. Social-emotional learning (SEL) curricula teach children techniques to gain confidence, set goals, make better decision,collaborate with others in work and play. Navigating the world more effectively focusing on improving cooperation, communication, and decision-making.
