It should reflect an understanding of how children learn and develop by: 1.Addressing the developmental needs of children through practices that are consistent with current research, nationally recognized, and most effective practices. (All domains are taught in an integrated manner, not in isolation.) 2.Valuing exploration, creativity and construction as the childs primary learning approaches (Children are actively moving about the room, interacting, exploring and investigating their environment.) 3.Engaging children actively in the learning process and providing them opportunities to make meaningful choices. (Worksheets are not utilized in any manner.) 4.Responding to individual child interests, strengths and needs based on ongoing observation and assessment. (Sequence of content is determined by individual child assessment and child interest.) 5.Supporting children so they will view themselves as part of a larger community (Childrens needs and interests should be considered, and peer to peer opportunities should be supported.) 6.Emphasize 21 st century learning skills for the development of processing skills through strategies such as open-ended questions, investigations, imaginative and dramatic play, and peer interactions. (Flashcards or worksheets are not utilized in any manner.)
