Funtime uses the Early Learning Guidelines and Early Learning Standards curriculum which is recommended by the Mississippi State Department of Education and the Quality Stars Rating System for Early Education Programs. These standards create a framework to ensure children are ready to process information needed for a smooth transition to the Common Core Curriculum implemented in our public school’s K5 classrooms. All of our lead teachers have been trained to implement these benchmarks using methods that best match the way we know young children learn and develop.

Children learn best by doing, and our Curriculum uses a developmental “hands-on” approach built around weekly or monthly themes. During each week we address all areas of development: social, emotional, physical (large and small motor), cognitive and language development. Lesson plans are prepared weekly and posted in each classroom.

There is a balance between teacher-directed and child-initiated activities. Our classrooms are set up in a learning center configuration, which allows each child to choose activities in the different classroom areas. The activities in each learning center are planned by the teachers to facilitate discovery learning.

Our daily schedule includes large group, small group, and individual activities as well as learning center times. The children are guided and encouraged to learn new self-help skills, think for themselves, make choices, experiment, explore, make mistakes, and have a lot of fun in the process. These centers are very similar to what you will find in area kindergarten classrooms.
