The Little House Next Door utilizes the evidenced-based and research-backed, Conscious Discipline. This program has won several awards and is one of the highest-rated curriculums for social and emotional learning. Conscious Discipline strategies are implemented throughout the Center, from the infant room to the VPK classroom. It is a method of teaching children not only what needs to be done, but how to do it in an appropriate manner. It provides the practical skills needed to manage thoughts, feelings, and actions. In teaching children to self-regulate, we help children learn and use problem-solving skills.
Complimentary to the social and emotional learning is the Frog Street curriculum, another research-based award-winning curriculum, for VPK and pre-VPK classes. Frog Street is a blueprint for planning and implementing a developmentally appropriate program for joyful learning. It’s effectiveness in helping children acquire the skills they need to succeed as learners is well documented. Frog Street also incorporates Conscious Discipline strategies for positive classroom management and child/teacher relationships.
This curriculum divides child development into the following areas with each daily lesson; social and emotional intelligence, brain development, literacy, second language learning, and STEM practices. Cultural sensitivity is embedded in the instruction and materials of the curriculum.
