Philosophy & Curriculum
Birthed out of a home in the Berkeley Hills, The Heart Centered Preschool is a year-round preschool for children. Our preschool program supports the emotional, creative, and entrepreneurial development of children. Our curriculum is based on a weekly and daily rhythm which supports your child’s first years of development. We model our Rhythm of the Day from the breath - breathing in, engaging with activities which draw our attention & breathing out, engaging with activities which encourage expansion and free-play.
Our Heart Centered Pedagogy is based upon three principles:
Nurturing children towards healthily embracing every emotion that arises.
Cultivating a deep and meaningful relationship with our breath
Supporting the intimacy that our children have with their own development through great joy and acceptance.
"I see you. I hear you. I see you, love." These words make
a child's heart bloom.
Every ounce of communication between teachers and parents is greatly appreciated. We take full joy and care in communicating your child’s day through charts and documentation:
Organic Meal & Snack Menu.
Nap Chart, specifying how long your child napped or rested.
Bathroom Chart, specifying any urinations or bowel movements your child had throughout the day.
Our Online Preschool Album, a life-long photo album that highlights our moments of the day through text and images.
