My school is located in the city of Camden. The city of Camden is known as one of the poorest cities in the nation, whose public schools are well below the national and state standards. In order to further embed the college dreams in our youth and bring up the state standard, I believe it starts with books and well-rounded early childhood experience. It is my mission, in collaboration with our parents and the community, is to strive to provide children an excellent education in a safe and positive learning environment where they are prepared with the critical skills to reach their full potential for a world yet to be imagined. My students are 4-5-year-old students who are thriving academically and socially due to our curriculum. Creative Curriculum is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that promotes exploration and discovery as a way of learning, enabling children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills. With this curriculum, my students will be ready for elementary school.
In the winter it gets very cold, and often snowy, but it is still essential for the children to be able to go outdoors and play. While appropriate winter clothing is a given for some children; unfortunately many of our students have inadequate winter gear, as their families are unable to afford warm, durable snow pants and boots for playing outside. As a result, many students are not allowed, much less encouraged, to play outside when it is cold and wet. By having these hats and gloves, I can assure that the students are warm and safe to play outside.
