Our Curriculum

Our Old Adobe School curriculum is, in great part, based on exploration. Through observation, conversation and research, the staff and children select areas of interest and investigate. Because children are naturally curious about the world around them, they provide an endless number of explorations. Current examples have included lizards, water, color, volcanoes, pill bugs, acceleration and honey.

Embedded in the explorations are all the standards that the state of California requires for kindergarten readiness. On any given day, you might find us searching the grounds for insects, counting and mapping their location, observing their defenses, constructing their likenesses from paint, paper, clay, etc. and dictating books about our discoveries. These explorations can be individualized or adopted by whole groups.

We hope to develop a keen interest in the natural world, positive peer interaction, self-regulation, and artistic expression, while offering the time and space to grow. More...
