Our Curriculum is rooted in a comprehensive, balanced approach to learning. Our early education programs foster creativity, while also developing critical thinking and social/emotional skills. Newtown Discovery Preschool supports a diverse, multicultural environment in which we recognize that students learn differently and have various areas of interest. Specifically, we implement a Global Education curriculum, which incorporates all the best methodology from around the world and is supported by the latest research in implementing a rich, high quality early childhood education program. Our pedagogy and teaching philosophy is based on the world-renowned philosophies of Reggio Emilia, Maria Montessori, David Elkind (author of The Power of Play) & Howard Gardner (The Multiple Intelligences). These theories are embedded into our curriculum and incorporate the Pennsylvania Learning Standards.
Key Learning Areas
Our content-rich programs are customized to your child’s readiness level, areas of interest, and learning profile (how they learn best). Early childhood is a magical time when the brain develops the vast majority of its neurons and is most receptive to learning. We know that the first five years are the building blocks for the formal years in education that lie ahead, so why not give your little one a head start?
Our teachers provide meaningful experiences that naturally foster your child’s intellectual potential through individualized instruction to meet the developmental needs of each child. Teachers also encourage students to explore their passions, take risks to try new things, and learn from mistakes in a safe, supportive environment. Learn more about our programs.
