At GELA, our programs are organized to develop students cognitive skills, social/emotional skills, executive function skills, academic skills, physical skills and more. We do this through dramatic play and structured activities designed to build these skills. Focusing on these skills in the early childhood setting is imperative and leads to students being prepared for the elementary school setting.
Art is a creative expression component of our curriculum based program that is implemented in our infant, toddler, and preschool programs. Our students are engaged in weekly art activities.
Science and Technology
Toddlers and preschoolers learn science and engineering concepts through exploring and experiments. Technology is introduced to our preschool students throughout their curriculum program.
Toddlers and preschoolers learn basic foundational math skills needed to excel in elementary school while also being introduced to more advanced skills when ready.
Language Development skills are focused on at each age level with daily literacy activities and read-alouds. Our PreK4 program develops beginning readers.
Toddlers begin building fine motor skills and our preschoolers continue developing effective fine motor skills through daily writing activities.
Toddlers and preschoolers have 60 minutes of physical activities daily. We also offer a soccer and tennis program for our students to promote physical development.
