Focus on Early Learning
Our main integrated curriculum is the Focus on Pre-K curriculum which facilitates powerful learning experiences for three- and four-year-olds. The Focus on Pre-K curriculum was developed by Boston Public Schools and supports children's development across intellectual, social-emotional, and physical domains, addressing State learning standards in Approaches to Play and Learning, English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science and Engineering, and integrating the Arts in child-driven and teacher-guided learning experiences. National research has identified Focus on Pre-K as one of the strongest, most consistently proven interventions for closing the achievement gap.
Building Blocks™ embeds mathematical learning in PreK students’ daily activities—from designated math activities to circle and story time—to relate informal math knowledge to formal concepts.
