Nellis AFB Child The philosophy behind our curriculum is that young children learn best by doing. Learning is not just repeating what someone else says but requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand. Play provides the foundation for academic or "school" learning. It is the preparation children need before they learn highly abstract symbols such as letters (which are symbols for sound) and numerals (which are symbols for numerical concepts). Play enables us to achieve the key goals of our early childhood curriculum.
