MICRO-SCHOOL COMMUNITY

WONDer focuses on building and nurturing a small, supportive, and caring community of learners. Our micro-school model fosters the building of positive and meaningful relationships between teachers, students and their families. We purposely enroll a small number of students to be able to emphasize on individual student growth and developmentally appropriate and innovative approaches to learning.  

CHILD-CENTERED INTEGRATED LEARNING

At WONDer we want children to be active learners! We base learning experiences on children’s needs and interests. We also integrate our curriculum guide to pursue children’s learning in a holistic way, considering aspects of children's emotional, social, physical and intellectual development.

SCAFFOLDED PLAY EXPERIENCES

Everyday at WONDer, children are purposely allowed to choose from a variety of play materials that provide opportunities and invitations to engage in playful and stimulating experiences. To meet the needs and interests of our children, our teachers thoughtfully scaffold children’s play environments and activities.

 ENGLISH LANGUAGE IMMERSION

At WONDer, children will be immersed in an English-speaking environment where they will practice the language in everyday scenarios. As research suggests, young children have a greater chance of acquiring and developing a new language with ease and success when they are exposed to it from an early age. 

MIXED-AGE GROUPING

We believe that children make the best teachers. Multi-age grouping encourages children to learn from each other. By purposefully grouping children of different ages to form one learning community, we allow children to cultivate essential life skills such as: kindness, empathy, respect, and leadership.

low STUDENT-TEACHER RATIOS 

We are committed to small groups that provide high-quality and meaningful interactions between children and teachers. Our teacher-student ratios are kept small to ensure that each child is given essential and purposeful attention throughout all learning experiences. Additionally, we have teacher assistants supporting our teachers in the care of our students.

Play spACes

Children's brain needs movement! That is why we use play areas instead of classrooms. Our children get to experience every play area throughout the week, allowing them to explore something new every time!

Some of the areas your child will be invited into  while at Wonder include: art, construction, micro

& macro dramatic play ,outdoor play and others.

FAMILY INVOLVEMENT

We believe that strong, trusting and positive relationships between teachers and families are essential in the development of every child.

To support this important partnership, we will have constant communication with parents and will be planning various types of exciting family events throughout the year. 

"Let's root for each other and watch each other grow."

BEYOND CENTERS
& CIRCLE TIME


 

 At WONDeR, we use the BCCT  as a guide for our teachers to plan, organize and scaffold play experiences for all our children. This play-based curriculum guide is backed up by current and past research on child development and supported by the theories of Vygotsky, Piaget, Freud, and Erikson. 

BCCT examines the development of the child engaged in the three main types of play, which include sensorimotor, construction, and dramatic play.

SENSORIMOTOR PLAY

According to Piaget, children learn best through their senses and their interaction with their surroundings. At Wonder, we provide a full range of opportunities for children to play with different textures and materials that are supportive of their sensorimotor needs, which include sensory processing and motor responses. 

"Play is our brain's favorite way of learning."
