About Full Day Fours Curriculum
The FD4's includes a balance of both STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and Early Childhood Workshop Model.
The Early Childhood Workshop Model (ECW) is a standards-based framework for learning. This model will prepare children for the Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop Model they will experience in elementary school.
The STEM based learning practice includes hands-on, individualized learning. STEM is embedded into daily life, and advanced through teachers who create intentional learning environments and experiences.
