Children Study Their World Curriculum

We Are An Assessment Based Learning Center

All children develop and grow at varying rates and while age is a good starting point to determine social readiness for preschool, it is not the only aspect. Many early learning centers choose to transition children at birthdays; however, Berlin Education Station uses Early Preschool as a starting point to transition children at the natural school year (June and/or August), once various social, emotional and physical milestones have been met. This minimizes transitions for our little ones and allows children to move classrooms with familiar faces, giving them a sense of community and security as they grow and learn.

Physical education is integrated in to the daily curriculum as preschool students spend ample time each day engaging in a structured physical activity class within the Berlin Activities Depot.

  • Vigorous physical play to promote gross motor development and allow for better concentration during academic times.

  • Social free-play to foster important social skills and emotional development.

  • Small class sizes so when it does come time to learn early reading skills, children have individualized instruction to feel confident in their abilities.

  • A respect and understanding that all children develop at varying paces so there is no one-size-fits-all curriculum!
