Curriculum

Gumedia Nutritional Sciences School has a robust curriculum. Our preschool’s interdisciplinary approach
develops a deep interest and understanding in topics related to the sciences, technology, engineering,
mathematics, art, nutrition, character development, and mind plus body athletics. Our young scholars
actively enjoy the process of learning and seek knowledge because of our diverse weekly themes.
Additionally, we offer opportunities to experiment with individual interests.

At Gumedia Nutritional Sciences School, we engage in intentional teaching to set individualized learning
goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and developmentally appropriate. We evaluate
and reevaluate the learning experience for each child according to different developmental scales that
include mathematical and scientific thinking, language and literacy, social-emotional development,
social studies, the arts, and physical development, health and safety, and character development.

  OUR CURRICULUM not only incites joyful structured-play but is also Montessori-inspired, STEM-focused, and indicator-based. Our early education classrooms are teacher guided; however, the child is given liberty in their learning. We support independence and the ability to self-regulate and to learn boundaries. Children that are more involved in planning and choosing how to receive their education are more likely to become lifelong learners and to avoid early academic burnout.
