Curriculum : Legacy Children's Academy

Option #1. Traditional Curriculum

In our traditional program, children are driven by natural curiosity, an inner spark, and an eagerness to learn. To guide children’s learning and help them reach their full potential, emphasis is placed on cognitive structure and social development with the Teacher providing a guiding role in classroom activity while the child is an active participant in learning.

  • The Five Principles
  • Principle 1: A rich child-centered curriculum helps kids develop approaches to learning.
  • Principle 2: Their social and emotional development is fostered by positive connections among students, and between students and teachers.
  • Principle 3: Language and literacy is served by activities that help kids express themselves in language, recognize letters and numbers, develop their vocabulary, and form the early skills of writing.
  • Principle 4: A child’s cognition develops into thinking and reasoning skills throughout their life.
  • Principle 5: Physical activity and sensory exploration helps children in their perceptual, motor, and physical development.

Option #2. Montessori Curriculum

A method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process.

  • The Five Principles
  • Principle 1: Respect for the Child. Respect for the Child is the major principle underlying our teaching methods.
  • Principle 2: The Absorbent Mind.
  • Principle 3: Sensitive Periods.
  • Principle 4: The Prepared Environment.
  • Principle 5: Auto education.

Orange Curriculum

From preschool through high school, the Orange Strategy draws on the elements of wonder, discovery, and passion, infusing them into children, students, and young adults. Why? To see God for who He is, to help young people see themselves the way God sees them, so that they can love others the way God does!
