Caterpillar utilizes the Learning without Tears curriculum throughout the school year. Learning without Tears believes that every child should engage in activities that make learning fun, but also makes learning easy. The curriculum involves 36 weeks of instruction that is divided into 6 content themes that will help the children achieve their academic needs and social needs for the outcome of Pre-K. Each theme allows students to use both their fine motor skills and gross motor skills in discovery play and active learning. Learning without Tears helps children show off the children’s creativity and to show how their little minds work. At the completion of the Learning without Tears curriculum, every child should have improvement in readiness & writing, language & literacy, numbers & math, and oral language, science, and social studies.
