Cherry Blossom integrates the Competency Based Curriculum

Our learning programs begin for toddlers and continue to grade school. Cherry Blossom Learning Center incorporates the Creative Curriculum. For more information on the Creative Curriculum: www.creativecurriculum.net

Any preschool can help a child learn letters, numbers, or shapes. At Cherry Blossom, we help children learn how to learn. Our curriculum emerges from the child's interest and through experiential learning. We encourage every child to ask "why?" and discover the answers for themselves.

CBLC's Curriculum is presented to children in eight learning centers in all classrooms for children from 1 to 5 years old. Children work cooperatively in small groups to reach developmental milestones and school readiness through exploring, experimenting, and repetition.

Teachers and staff at CBLC meet to insure a proper curriculum delivery to all children.

Music Together will provide thirty to forty- five minutes long classes which include an artistically conceived flow of songs, nursery rhymes, instrumental jam sessions, finger plays, and movement activities. The combination and types of activities are research-based and support children’s developing competence in tonality and rhythm. In addition, activities evolve from the child’s world and include vocal play, animal sounds, rhythm play, language play, and a good bit of genuine fun. For more information contact: Ms. Yanina

Yoga
Is offered as an after-school enrichment opportunity. Yoga combines unique toddler-friendly yoga poses with songs, stories, and games to create an enriching parent/child activity. Yoga for preschoolers teaches children how to relieve frustration, improve motor skills, and increase attention span by actively following directions. It’s a great bonding experience for parents and preschoolers, too. Because the natural attention span of preschoolers is shorter, ten to fifteen minutes of yoga per day is good practice. As they get older, increasing this time and introducing other concepts of yoga is a possibility.
