Curriculum

Our carefully designed curriculum facilitates learning in a play-based, thematic and multicultural manner for each age group. We view learning as a process that requires a balance between child-initiated and staff-initiated activities. These developed activities incorporate and understand the developmental level of each group. We incorporate physical, social, language, cognitive, and emotional development.

Guided Curriculum

Castle Pines Academy utilizes a guided curriculum that offers stimulating cognitive, emotional, and social experiences for children in our programs. Exposure to a diverse daily schedule is critical to encourage children to discover their world. We ensure that all of our Developmental Domains are integrated into our curriculum to give Castle Pines Academy kids a strong foundation for school and for life. In addition to teaching respect, responsibility, and independence, we focus on empowering children to have the confidence to interact successfully with others. Children are given the freedom to explore, develop individually, and achieve their full potential within a creative learning environment.
