Academic Curriculum

Academics take a high priority at KinderNoggin and the carefree spirit and playful nature of children is embraced. In developing our curriculum, we considered the whole child -intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally.
Program Overview

 

KinderNoggin’s preschool curriculum and lesson plans were developed using North Carolina approved early-childhood curricula, High Reach.  Along with this successful curriculum, KinderNoggin partners with creative and very talented pre-school teachers that have shown their ability to educate, inspire and motivate young children by thinking outside the box.

KinderNoggin is dedicated to providing a high-quality learning environment with a personable and cozy feel that is welcoming to preschool children. Goals and objectives for children’s learning are based on each child’s individual development. Our program sets high and clear expectations which foster a culture of achievement.

Developmental Progress Assessments

Developmental Progress Assessments are used to by KinderNoggin teachers to monitor children’s growth academically, social & emotionally and physically throughout the year.
Developmental Progress Assessments support the following:
Program overview
1. Goal Setting – Assist teachers in establishing instructional goals
2. Planning & Implementation - Use assessment information to guide and enrich classroom instruction
3. Monitoring & Management - Guide learners in acquiring new knowledge and skills
4. Evaluation - Forecast standards mastery
5. Communication - Share results with parents through child portfolios, progress reports and parent-teacher conferences


In support of the partnership between the parent and teacher, work samples and progress reports are collected and stored in a child’s portfolio. The portfolio shows the culmination of all the work that has been done and the child’s continued growth. Teachers and parents will be able to pinpoint strengths and also identify areas of additional instruction needed for every child.  Developmental Progress Assessments help teachers prepare children today for the opportunities and challenges of tomorrow.

Conscious Discipline

Conscious Discipline is a classroom management technique that places focus on positive behavior and well defined limits. It celebrates the child’s successes and choices while helping the teacher see situations from the child’s perspective, as well as their own. It creatively teaches the child how to communicate their wishes and frustrations with words, using an acceptable manner, and it holds the child accountable to those teachings.
Based on current brain research, child development information, and developmentally appropriate practices this social-emotional curriculum was specifically designed to make changes in the lives of adults first then, in turn, the adults change the lives of children. It holds adults accountable as models of acceptable behavior for children, then as adults begin to change their attitudes and behaviors, so will the children in their care. We cannot teach behaviors and skills that we do not possess ourselves.
 

 Program Overview

Conscious Discipline is a way for organizing classrooms around the concept of a School Family. Each member of the family, both teacher and child, learns the skills needed to successfully manage life tasks such as communicating effectively, getting along with others, being sensitive to others’ needs, forming relationships and learning.
 
Conscious Discipline scientifically and practically links social-emotional learning and classroom management to achieve childcare program-wide success.
