We, at Phillip Roy, Inc., believe that
early childhood education has a lasting impact and that children learn the
skills necessary for success in their educational program both at school
and home. We provide a wide range of activities to help children get ready
for school and life.
All of the activities provide meaningful settings for children’s
learning rather than focusing on isolated skills acquisitions. The activities
emphasize informal work and play and relate to the children’s direct,
firsthand experiences. The wide range of activities provides many chances
for the children to apply skills being learned in worthwhile situations.
Our materials build on children’s curiosity, abilities, and interests.
They provide hands on learning with tangible objects. This enables children
to experience the world around them.
Our activities include play in which children learn, develop their abilities
to communicate, explore, try out new ideas and experiences, expand their
physical and social capabilities, and express themselves.
Our materials integrate learning. By using the different activities,
themes and projects can be developed that provide a way to expand knowledge
and skills in a holistic manner.
Because the activities in this curriculum help children improve school
readiness skills, they are better prepared children for kindergarten and
first grade. As the children’s language and social skills improve
and they learn how to do more things, their feelings about themselves
improve and they gain an increase in positive self-concept and self-esteem.
The variety of activities provided in this curriculum along with the
focus on individual abilities allows children to have positive learning
experiences. As the children develop specific skills and know what they
are able to do, their self-confidence and self-esteem are improved.
All of the activities in this curriculum increase positive interactions,
shared events, and improved verbal interactions.
Language development and reasoning is promoted through conversation,
questioning, and opportunities for children to hear and to create stories.
The activities help in the development of the learning potential of the
children and decrease the need for remedial or special education.
The activities in the curriculum help children develop specific skills
and values and see signs of progress. The children then develop intrinsic
rewards of performance and accomplishment. This joy and the fun of learn
