Early Education Approach
The curriculum at the GCC is play-based with a focus on creating caring and nurturing environments, responding to children’s unique needs, and embracing a culture of innovation and change that reflects Google. The inquiry based curriculum is designed bi-weekly based on observations and interests of children, parents and educators, documentation, and reflection.
We believe the best learning environment starts with a balanced classroom. We keep considerations such as age, gender, development and special needs in mind when designing our classrooms. As children age up, we continue to put a lot of thought into the design of the classroom. We have continuity of care especially for infants and toddlers. Cohorts stay together through young preschool and often through pre-k.
