Experiences at ACP promote the child`s development in the following domains: Language and Literacy, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, the Arts, Social Foundations, Physical Well-Being and Motor Development. Developmentally appropriate practices are implemented to address the individual needs and strengths of every child. Play is an organizing framework for children to investigate and build knowledge.
