KéKAY Method’s Early Childhood Education Curriculum

dreamstime_xxl_122317644.jpg

Children learn in a multitude of ways, absorbing information about their surroundings and helping them build an holistic view of themselves in relation to others and the world. If you’ve ever wondered why there is so much emphasis placed on early childhood learning, it’s because learning things like numbers, shapes, and colors, and letting them engage in dramatic play, music and movement actually helps children build the foundational skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. We fill our classes with visual stimulation and movement and there is a lot of learning happening! For more information about our method, or to enroll your child in our 45-minute or 2.5 hour drop-off program, contact us today!

Understanding the World Around Them

It is never too early to encourage your child to learn about the complexity of the world they live in. Our early childhood curriculum includes teaching children about their physical space as well as the larger concept of the world. We want to harness the natural curiosity and inspire them to ask questions about other cultures and languages. This portion of our curriculum also teaches new words in a different language, multicultural appreciation and global placement. We move through this portion of the class by using music and movement and our visual guides and storytelling.

Numbers, Shapes, and Colors

Shapes, colors, and numbers are all around us — Helping children prepare for school by learning these skills through play and movement, help them assimilate information as they move on to preparing for the next level of education. Our puppet uses storytelling to incorporate learning about colors and shapes. We use these shapes and colors in a multitude of ways as we form physical shapes throughout the lesson. Three dimensional concepts are introduced as we move through the curriculum of our shapes. We emphasize a different color each week as we teach basic colors for this age group. In addition to shapes and colors, learning about numbers is introduced. We teach the basic 0-9 numbers and do simple math problems as we play games. Hopping, skipping, moving and dancing our way through counting, marching and clapping. Simple math is introduced by recognizing numbers and also how we use those numbers in simple addition and subtraction.

Physical Activity

Through music and movement and other physical activity, children engage in an inner experience as well as a shared experience. Children learn about themselves and get to channel their energy into productive, creative, and positive play. Young children learn by experience and active involvement. Physical movement also lays the foundation for a healthy and active lifestyle. Forming the habit of enjoying physical exercise and activities teach an appreciation for movement when they’re older too.

At KéKAY Method, we offer physical activities that are learning experiences linked to other interests, abilities, and knowledge so that children are actively engaged in the learning process. These skills:

  • Improve social interaction

  • Improve posture

  • Improve concentration

  • Improve gross motor skills

  • Expand their vocabulary

  • Cultivate love for music

  • Engage the brain in mindful decisions

  • Provide the necessary opportunities to develop these important skills and make friends

Composers and Languages

Appreciating music and learning about languages, are fundamental parts of human interaction. We use the interpretation of music and language skills to teach how cultures around the world differ and how we are also the same in so many respects. Our connection as humans can be enriched by sharing music and the beauty of language.
