educational and developmental goals
Child Development Teacher: Art Beast Child Development Center
Our school community is made up of children, parents and teachers engaged in student-centered learning that values child choice, social justice, culturally competent curriculum, and the natural world. Our educational environment is forged by the dynamic interaction of teachers, empowered and curious children, the families that love them, and our evolving understanding of how the brain learns best.
Our early childhood education approach is influenced by project based learning, Reggio Emilia, Waldorf, Montessori, and various other educational philosophies. We believe in employing a curriculum that is inclusive and that allows the young child the flexibility to emerge in her or his own learning and grow socially as a strong, able bodied, intentional human being. We encourage individual expression through art, movement, gardening and digging in the earth, as well as through music, dance, song, poetry and imaginative play, while supporting social emotional development and relationship building. We believe children will grow to be brave, compassionate, and action oriented, and to think critically and creatively about the world around them when given the space to unfold.
We strive to create a powerful and respectful learning environment for all children. The following beliefs and philosophies inform our design and approach:
• Child development and brain research inform our practice.
• We believe in connecting to nature.
• We operate on the belief that a joyful and productive spirit promotes problem solving, curiosity, and life-long learning.
• We will find quiet moments and boisterous moments and everything in between as we explore the possibilities of each day and discovery it offers.
• Children know what they need and desire each day when artful teachers make space for their inquiries.
• We will read favorite books, experiment relentlessly, share the work of tantrums and nose wiping, laugh, move, and sing songs. We will listen to magical stories, tell them, and enact them as we make new words and new stories our own.
• We will acknowledge every child’s beauty and brilliance not for what they wear but for who they are.
• We welcome the wisdom of children’s families and the value their home cultures.
• We believe teacher is guide, researcher, nurturer, and a playful partner.
• We support emergent curricula, where children investigate, observe, have ideas, and develop a powerful voice that is equitable and inclusive.
• We believe in play and playfulness.
• Temperament will never be a label or an obstacle. No child will ever be dubbed “shy” or “naughty” or given any label that narrows their possibilities. Likewise, we do not harness children to gender identities or roles. Our curriculum and our stories speak to the widest possibilities of each child, reflect diversity of experience, and feature male and female protagonists in equal measure.
• Our teachers respect where each child is on her or his learning journey.
• We believe children use many languages to communicate.
• Children learn best through loving, authentic relationships.
Philosophy and Curricular Influences:
Our program celebrates a range of educational philosophies without claiming allegiance to any single one. We believe that too many factors come into play when discerning what must be learned and the best way to teach a room full of individual children. We prefer the freedom and challenge of answering the question "What do children need?" to the prepackaged certainties of an educational dogma.
That said, we are true admirers of many of the great thinkers on education. Our program digs into their notions, using a range of powerful teaching approaches. While this may gall the purists, it allows us to remember the ultimate truth: Children always come before curriculum.
This also keeps us mindful that learning always has a context. It happens in a time and place. It happens in a particular phase of development. It happens with an emotional backdrop the teacher(s) may not even know. The most vibrant educational philosophies used today were honed in very specific historical contexts. They deserve to wrestle with a modern context. In our program, we commit to mindfully defining an education that engages with the world and the child at hand. With this in mind, our program incorporates aspects of many approaches.
We support children with love and the offering of experiences with an awareness that each child has his or her own temperament, learning style and learning timetable.
Learning stations are carefully designed and rotated to stimulate and challenge children. Activities and projects are offered with integrated themes. Areas covered include the creative arts (music, movement and drama), science, math concepts, language development, practical life, cultural studies, as well as opportunities to develop small and large motor skills, sensory awareness, an understanding of one’s own voice and the strength behind it, communication and friendship building, creativity, problem solving, and skill building. To foster growth in these areas we ask open ended questions, use the brainstorming process, and have debriefing group sessions where all children have a chance to have their voice heard. We reference our "work" and our community daily so children make the connections about their own sense of place and feel that connection.
Research confirms that children learn best through play and hands on activities and this is what we do every day! In offering a dynamic, holistic education and project based learning opportunities in and outside the classroom, experienced teachers and children are ignited in spirit. Children experience play that challenges and grows the mind and the body. Children are supported in individual expression and through one's own discovery of self-confidence; children have the opportunity to bond within their community individually each day.
Art Beast Child Development Center is a play based center for children infant, toddler, preschool and school aged children. Both schools offer intentional curriculum and are play based. Tag-lined as “a school for creators, inventors, and havers of grand ideas,” Both schools offer environments where a child can engage in self-directed play and exploration. Indoor and outdoor spaces include opportunities for both community and independent play. The dynamic environments balance an offering of rhythm and predictability with ever rotating supplies and experiences that allow children to explore the arts, sciences, movement, nature, math, reading, writing, and community in a range of ways.
Our schools were founded by the same creative team behind Art Beast Children’s Studio in midtown Sacramento.
