Aldersgate is a play-based, developmentally appropriate preschool. Our curriculum is based on an approach known as emergent learning. Classrooms are set up with "learning center" which encourages curiosity and exploration. Emergent curriculum is a way of planning lessons based on the children's interests and passion. Children learn best when their interests are captured.
Students participate in a variety of activities during their day including circle time, concept/story time, music, art , math, science, snack, free play and both indoor and out door play time.
