At Newton Learning Center, We believe that each child has their own unique way of learning and they develop at their own rate in all areas of their growth: physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally. Learning occurs through many processes such as creative play, exploration, observation, experimentation, and interaction with others. Our program emphasizes "hands on" learning through a variety of activities designed to develop readiness skills. Our phonetic reading program helps to develop phonemic awareness and letter sound association. This program has proven to be very successful in many school districts and we ourselves have had great successes. 90% of our graduating kindergarten classes are already reading. In a similar fashion, "our math center" includes a variety of activities to help children learn beginning math concepts. Children remember and later use these new skills when they are presented in a manner that is meaningful, fun, and a part of the child's daily life activities. Our kindergarten curriculum also includes activities in science, cultural awareness, music, creative movement, and various art projects.
