Lake Edge uses components of Creative Curriculum,
Wisconsin Model of Early Learning Standards (WMELS),
Project Learning Tree, Project Wild, and Growing Up Wild.
We encourage children to be active and creative explores
who try new ideas and think on their own, thus enabling
children to become independent, self-confident,
and inquisitive learners.
Our nature-influenced curriculum model include
learning experiences in the following areas:
Physical: fine and large motor skills
Social and emotional development
Creativity, art, music, and dramatic play
Cognitive development: problem solving, sorting, asking open-ended questions
Linguistic development: letters, numbers, letter sounds
"If we really want children to thrive we need to let their connection to nature nurture them." Claire Warden
