Students engage in scientific explorations on a daily basis. Whether through casual outdoor discoveries or teacher-directed activities, our program emphasizes wonder, curiosity, observation and experimentation. Our pre-k, kindergarten, pre-first, and first grade students attend weekly science classes, stretching imagination and creative thinking through inquiry and experimentation.
Technology, a tool used to enhance our curriculum, helps us journey to places unreachable within the classroom walls. Our kindergarten and pre-first classes have interactive whiteboards, promoting collaboration and individualized learning, and many of the classes have use of computers to reinforce and enrich concepts taught throughout the day.
Manipulating and playing with blocks, Legos, play dough, and a variety of materials found indoors and out; powers ingenuity and collaboration. The opportunity for free play and open-ended exploration are encouraged daily, inspiring our next generation of engineers.
Everyday activity and routine provide the backbone for early math literacy. We emphasize exploration, flexible thinking and creative problem solving. As children grow and develop, exposure to mathematical concepts becomes more complex, and students apply gained knowledge and skills to solve more challenging problems. We use The University of Chicago’s Everyday Mathematics program as the foundation for our math curriculum.
With our bountiful rain garden, vegetable and herb gardens, an outdoor classroom, a musical garden, an 8 acre campus and students with an abundance of natural curiosity, Redeemer is the perfect place to explore through outdoor learning. Our offerings provide an on-going opportunity for hands-on exploration and observation through the study of local and natural habitats and species, stimulating students’ wonder.
