Pooh Corner Programs
Otrobando Location Offers Accredited Programs by NAEYC
Pooh Corner’s early childhood philosophy is based on the thought that children learn best by doing. Learning isn't just repeating what someone else says; it requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand about the world we live in. Since young children "learn through play," they need opportunities to handle materials, experiment, explore, interact with others, think and participate. A carefully organized and age appropriate classroom environment serves as the foundation for the curriculum. The environment invites children to observe, make choices, and experiment. Each environment is unique in that it captures the interests of children involved. Children use all of their senses (touch, taste, sound, smell, and sight) as they explore and learn about their world. Our goal is to nurture individual children’s physical, social, emotional, language and intellectual development and to help them become enthusiastic, self-confident, independent thinkers. We do this through the intentionality of our curriculum planning goals and daily activities. We strive to address the needs of each child that enters the program.
