  • As you enjoyed exploring that role, you were figuring out how different people behave and learning through play.
  • A play-based curriculum allows children the freedom to have fun while discovering and exploring the world and their interests. To support learning through play, the F.L.EX. Learning Program includes the following:Fun, hands-on activities that allow children to learn through experience;Customized lesson plans that the teachers develop based on the children`s interests and adapt to the children`s developmental needs;Warm, nurturing classrooms that promote a passion for literacy, science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics;A daily schedule that ensures children have time for independent exploration and discovery every day;Age-appropriate interactive technologies, such as interactive whiteboards that support collaborative and meaningful learning without replacing creative play, exploration or physical activity.
