“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin


How We Teach Young Children:

The da Vinci School takes a thematic approach to learning, with science as our primary emphasis (social studies is a secondary focus). We find the topics that fall under the general discipline of science are of high interest to young children. Young children have a tremendous curiosity about the world around them. They want to know — What is that? How does it work? Why is it that way? and Let ME try it! For this reason, our classrooms emphasize hands-on learning.

Science is also a rich springboard for exploring the other developmental disciplines — art, literature, language and reading skills, cognitive processes, practical life skills, fine and gross motor development, math concepts, music, and social development. These skills can be enjoyably acquired in the context of topics young children find interesting and appealing

While the curriculum is the structure we give to our program, the relationships that young children develop with their teachers at this young age is what makes school such a special place to come each day.  We keep our classes small so the teachers really get to know and interact with each student. 

The result of curriculum and teachers creates a safe and loving environment that captures the young child’s interests and opens the door to a life of learning.
