Our Pre-School and Pre-K programs are built on the best qualities of several successful child development models. We have taken pieces from five of the world’s most popular learning models to develop a variety of activities and lessons that will benefit your child. Let’s get an overview of our curriculum and highlight the models we’ve used as inspiration. The German Kindergarten Model The German kindergarten model is the base of Castle Academy. This model teaches us that the best way to learn is by doing and to give children ample opportunity to learn in a safe, nurturing environment. This model also uses an understanding and appreciation of nature to get kids’ minds wondering and learning. Castle Academy appreciates the love of nature and slows down the pace of lessons and class time to help children learn and become more curious about their world. As a bonus, this method stamps a lifelong love of learning and appreciation of the natural world. The most important aspect of the German kindergarten model is building a foundation for children to learn throughout their life and appreciate the excitement of learning something new. We use the tools and ideas of the German kindergarten model to get your children interested in their natural environment and to prepare them for future success.
