Children are thinkers and explorers from day one. They are curious about the world and themselves, wanting to learn everything they can about both.

So it makes sense that this natural approach to understanding their world would be an essential part of how kids learn! And it is!

The play-based curriculum at Heartland Kids focuses on both academic preparation for school, and skills in the following areas: cognitive development, social and emotional development, speech and language, fine motor skills, and gross motor skills.

Using child-centered, age appropriate activities, play-based learning also expands skills like problem-solving, teamwork, conflict resolution, and self-regulation.

In this way, the Heartland Kids curriculum encourages children’s imaginations and inspires them to become lifelong learners!
