More About Our Curriculum:
Life skill development. We focus on learning life skills that will serve students well throughout their life. Such skills include: cooking & nutrition, sewing, money management, outdoor survival skills, "street smarts" (how to be safe & alert in an urban setting), public speaking, and meditation. Each month is dedicated to learning a different life enriching skill. The month of October is dedicated to learning sewing. Students are sewing trick-or-treat bags!
Yoga + Mindfulness offers essential life management skills that allowkids to access inner resources like their breath, body and mindset in times of stress. When kids can activate their inner resources, they can meet challenges with a sense of personal power, and thrive in a wide variety of circumstances.
Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). We have two different focused SEL classes: Emotion Regulation & Social Skills and Empathy & Relationship Skills. Each class teaches emotional reaction management skills and interpersonal skills, then allows for the opportunity to practice the learned skills, in real-time, with peers during free time. Each class is taught by Child Behavior Specialist, Brandy Simison. If you are unsure which class(es) are most appropriate for your child, please call Brandy at: 425-526-4600 to help you identify the best option.
There are a total of 4 class times available. You may choose 1-4 of these classes. Each class has a different activity to eliminate redundancy and further build knowledge and skills.
Learning Advancement. Executive functioning + tutoring. During this class, children are provided with activities that build their executive functioning skills. Then they engage in active learning via their choice of movement and are assisted to make connections to their learnings with real-world experiences from their interests or prior experiences. We end with self-reflection to solidify learnings. Children's actual schoolwork is utilized.
