CUSTOMIZED CURRICULAR APPROACH
In order to provide the very best, individualized approach for each child, GBN staff employ a range of developmentally appropriate teaching strategies and formulates a curriculum that represents the best of several approaches and philosophies (e.g., Reggio Emilia, Montessori, Piaget). Our curriculum is literacy-rich, play-based, and project-oriented. With the Illinois Early Learning Standards as the foundation, we give our qualified teachers the freedom to develop curriculum based on what the classroom and each child needs.
THE HIGHEST STANDARDS
- Low child/staff ratios in all programs
- Administrators and teachers have extensive experience and degrees through the master's level
- GBN is an intern site for college and university students
- All staff is certified in CPR and First Aid and trained in allergy and asthma awareness
Since 1985, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has offered a national, voluntary accreditation system to set professional standards for early childhood education programs, and to help families identify high-quality programs. Today, NAEYC Accreditation represents the mark of quality in early childhood education. For more information, please visit naeyc.org.
