How we teach

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum fosters growth in children spiritually, emotionally, physically, socially and intellectually helping them develop into confident, competent and caring individuals and life-long learners.

Aligning with the California Early Learning Foundations, MCP curriculum emerges from the child’s interests, conversations, ideas and people in the environment. Teachers and staff develop curriculum to meet the current interests and needs of the children in the class through observation, interaction, and inquiry.

Fostering the Whole Child

Children experience an enriched learning environment through collaboration and small group work where they feel supported and nurtured throughout their early childhood journey.

We use curriculum that stretches across both indoor and outdoor classrooms, where children continue learning while experiencing God’s creation!
