The Emmanuel Day School embraces the Rhode Island Department of Education’s Early Learning Standards. These standards serve as a guide for the design and development of our curriculum. The Rhode Island Early Learning Standards cover nine domains; physical health and motor development, social and emotional development, language development, literacy, cognitive development, mathematics, science, social studies and creative arts. We work to ensure all nine of these domains are incorporated throughout each and every school day. Check out the RI Early Learning & Development Standards Here
The curriculum which is used at Emmanuel Day School is not a predetermined and fixed set of information. Rather, it is an ongoing plan of action, based on the program philosophy and the individual children enrolled in the program. Each month we design our environment and program topics to meet the interests and needs of our students. Some months we have studied: dinosaurs, space, pets, the ocean, bees, life cycles, weather, gardens and many many more topics!
