Where every day is hands-on...
How children learn is as important as what they learn. Kenan is intentional in teaching, interacting with children, developing curriculum and designing lessons- so children have the best foundation to grow in language, early literacy, math, social studies, science, technology and social and physical development.
Early literacy instruction focuses on phonological awareness skills. Children also learn that letters represent sounds and that meaning can be derived from print. Kenan students learn age-appropriate emergent writing skills through experiences that integrate motor skills development, language and meaningful play.
...and teachers teach with purpose.
Kenan teachers with unmatched expertise in early learning apply the latest cutting edge research on how young children develop brains constucted for reading - with the complex vocabulary, critical thinking skills, world knowledge and empathy demanded of them to succeed as confident, independent learners. And have fun on the way!
Teachers at Kenan understand child development and foster growth in setting that encourages intrinsic motivation, nurtures intellectual curiosity and rewards a willingness to take risks.
