At Providence Preparatory School in Charlotte, our Pre-K curriculum is based on preparing children for life and a love of learning. By nature, children are curious, inquisitive and learn best through multi-sensory experiences. In our Charlotte classrooms, we utilize The Project Based Learning approach. This Pre-K curriculum creates an environment at Providence in Charlotte that is flexible and supports all learners to be actively engaged. Project Based Learning is a child-centered approach that provides opportunities for collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking that are important for success in the twenty-first century.
During the Project Based Learning approach, teaching and learning are happening simultaneously. In the classroom at Providence in Charlotte, the teacher leads a brainstorming conversation that allows for the children to engage in an open dialogue with their peers. This collaboration is the foundation for the process by which children explore hands-on materials to make real world connections and construct their own meaningful experiences.
