Curriculum

WEE Learn Curriculum is framed by theory and philosophy of life. Led by faith and grounded in evidence-based practices, programs using the WEE Learn philosophy and curriculum work to support children and families. Children’s individual differences and learning styles are considered as children learn through play and interactions with supportive early childhood teachers to maximize each child’s learning potential. This thoughtful and well-planned curriculum has a multiple theoretical basis. By blending what is known from Bronfenbrenner’s ecological systems theory, Piaget’s theory of development, Erikson’s stages of development and Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, early childhood teachers prepare individually and age-appropriate experiences for young children.

VPK CURRICULUM-The DLM Early Childhood Express is a holistic, child-centered program that nurtures each child by offering focused, meaningful instruction that is developmentally appropriate. The complete system provides a wealth of English and Spanish materials to help foster the social-emotional, intellectual, and physical development of children.
