Our Curriculum

The Pembroke Hill early childhood school curriculum is based on the constructivist theory, which believes children construct knowledge through interactions with people, experiences and materials. Our curriculum addresses all areas of development for students in early years, preschool and prekindergarten including social-emotional, physical, language and cognitive development as well as the content areas of literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and the arts.

We understand that children learn best with a developmentally appropriate integrated approach. At Pembroke Hill we teach through the context of play, routines, activities, and projects; with a keystone of our curriculum being the warm and responsive relationships which are essential to learning. The ongoing, thorough, authentic assessment ensures that each child is being challenged and supported as a learner.
