About Our Curriculum for Child Care Near Gibsonton

In our programs, we strive to encourage our students to love learning. The key is to provide fun, interactive ways to discover and explore new ideas and concepts. At Discovery Point Symmes, we use two research-based curriculums. Each has its own unique qualities that help us provide age-appropriate content that is engaging and enjoyable.

Our main curriculum is Discovery Point Connections®. This is our own curriculum, and it holds a large focus on encouraging language and literacy development. Here are some key elements of this curriculum:

  • Adaptable content for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers
  • Weekly units with themed reading selections
  • Storytelling to encourage vocabulary and imagination
  • Inclusion of other subjects for a well-rounded approach
  • Opportunities for social, physical, and intellectual development

To ensure we are meeting the needs of our students, we have also partnered with Teaching Strategies®. Using their Creative Curriculum® systems allows us to provide hands-on learning opportunities. Here’s what you can expect from this curriculum:

  • Hands-on games, activities, and crafts
  • Curriculum for infants through 2 years old
  • Separate curriculum system for preschool
  • Focus on developing critical thinking skills
  • Grounded in child development theory

Using the two curriculums above allows us to provide comprehensive programs for our students. We value the importance of reading and love the interactive nature of hands-on learning. Choosing our programs will give your little one access to the care and education they need.
