Multiage Foundation Program

(10mos – 5 years)

The LAEL Multiage Foundation Program is catered to children ages 10 months to 5 years. Sensory based and multimodal activities and experiences are presented daily and classroom environments ensure children thrive in a stimulating and safe space. Children are beginning to be introduced to foundational concepts setting the building blocks for future learning. Some of the curriculum areas introduced are reading circle, pre-math, science, art, sensory play, yoga, cooking, music, drama and pottery.

LAEL Curriculum

“LAEL Curriculum is a guiding tool for LAEL educators when they are planning and creating learning environments and experiences in the classroom.”

LAEL Methodology

Our unique curriculum begins with children’s naturally curiosity. Daily learning opportunities are presented in multi sensory ways to stimulate brain development allowing children to explore and construct meaning based on their own experiences.

This is called inquiry-based learning.

LAEL Educators then use the Critical Literacy Approach

By engaging children in deeper reflection through open ended
questions and activities children are encouraged to look at things
from different perspectives, provoking thoughts, ideas and actions
which further engage their creative thinking processes building

The Language Arts Early Learning Program provides each LAEL family with their own yearly curriculum map.

This way you can follow along and feel confident in knowing what your child is learning at school each day and extend the learning at home.
