Curriculum

The Learning Experience believes that how children learn is as important as what they learn; therefore, we have created an innovative and exciting preschool curriculum. We call our proprietary curriculum L.E.A.P. (The Learning Experience Academic Program). L.E.A.P. encourages each child to achieve success independently while developing intellectually, socially, and physically. Our preschool program is broken up into three completely separate classes according to chronological age and developmental stage. Conceived and written by our own Curriculum Department at The Learning Experience Corporate Headquarters, L.E.A.P. provides our preschool teachers with a comprehensive monthly curriculum. Children in this age group are involved in hands-on activities that encourage them to explore and solve problems at their own rate of development. Children in the Little Learners group receive their personal age-appropriate L.E.A.P. book each month. The book contains a wide variety of activities that involve problems in logic, math, reading, phonics and writing skills. Each month has a different theme. Little Learners start in the Infants room and continuing through the Preppers room. My Little L.E.A.P.Book is designed just for Preppers acquainted with the habit of sitting and completing a workbook. Each page consists of a different concept: colors, shapes, numbers, sequencing, and letter awareness (one page a week). L.E.A.P. I is designed for children in our Preschool 1 age group. It is a step up from My Little L.E.A.P. Book; it consists of one workbook page per day. L.E.A.P. I includes writing readiness, numbers, counting, phonics, shapes and colors. L.E.A.P. II is designed for children in our Preschool 2 age group. It is a step up from L.E.A.P. I; it consists of two workbook pages per day. L.E.A.P. II includes numbers, colors, shapes, counting, number writing, sequencing, spatial concepts, measurement and other math concepts. L.E.A.P. Interactive is TLE's next generation of curriculum. Designed to enhance the monthly themed L.E.A.P. curriculum, children interact with the cutting-edge touch technology on a large screen, while experiencing real-time videos and eye-opening destinations via Google Earth. They can travel the world without ever leaving the classroom. They are also taught to use other unique tech tools like "fill it", "shape it", "draw it", and "spotlight". At the end of the month, the child's L.E.A.P. Interactive workbook is filled with their "I did this activity on the L.E.A.P. Interactive board" stickers. At the end of each week there is a weekly observation checklist, where each child is evaluated on that week's work. The L.E.A.P. books are sent home monthly with each child when completed. Each month children receive a new L.E.A.P. book with a bright, colorful theme based on the seasons and holidays. Inside they learn about shapes, colors, numbers and letters. L.E.A.P. books are designed to help parents understand the concepts their child is learning each month. At the end of each week the teacher evaluates the child's work using the Observation Checklist. The books are also a wonderful learning tool for parents who can revisit the concepts with their children at home after the month is complete.
