Learning Beyond Paper Curriculum
At Wonder Academy we incorporate the Learning Beyond Paper Curriculum alongside all inclusive enrichment experiences for students. Learning Beyond Paper is a social-constructivist curriculum. Young children are inherently social beings. As such, learning is most robust when children engage with peers and adults around activities where they are actively engaged. Children construct knowledge bridged upon what they already know, but it is that social, relationship-based connection that acts like glue - cementing understanding and seeking more. Our curriculum includes 52 weeks of lesson plans and over 4,000 daily activities that can be adjusted to meet children's learning levels and goals. The curriculum is aligned with the North Carolina Foundations for Early Learning and Development Standards.
Wonder Academy engages in active learning of STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. All components are emphasized throughout our curriculum.
All lesson plans and daily activities are aligned specifically with developmental stages and the students' interests.
21st Century Learning Curriculum
Our curriculum provides children with the skills they need to thrive in today's world, including collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving.
Integrated Training & Development
Training for teachers is built into daily instruction and our staff undergo monthly trainings to stay abreast current best practices.
Wonder Week All Inclusive Enrichment
Successful learning should be coupled with exposure and benefits beyond the traditional preschool curriculum. Our Wonder Week enrichment activities give students the opportunity to engage in new languages, music, abstract art, taekwondo, gross motor development through fitness, theater, and many other out of the box exciting new programs for a portion of each day. This leads children to unlock their own natural gifts and interests as they grow to better understand their own likes and dislikes.
