Early Childhood Program
CHP believes a nurturing program that fosters emotional, social, and cognitive skills through a scaffolded learning environment of structured and unstructured experiences is imperative in Preschool. Pre-literacy skills are taught with direct explicit instruction in phonemic awareness, alphabet principles with speech/sound correlations. In addition students are taught number sense, numeration, Social Studies and Science as they apply to daily life.
Students are integrated into the school-wide curriculum with classes in World Language, Art, Music, Guidance, Technology, Gym, and CHP special events. These become the building blocks that allow a fluid transition into Kindergarten and the early Elementary School.
