Adventurers

Become an Adventurer at i5 KIDS Early Learning Center!

Our Adventurers will spend their day in a safe, fun and engaging environment that encourages them to be confident in themselves, their teachers and their classrooms to create, explore, and effectively communicate information that is in and around their world. Their play will include cooperative play, imaginative play, and tabletop games. They will understand simple rules and be able to recognize shapes, colors and letters. Their development will be enhanced through the Investigator’s Club Curriculum, which touches on social and emotional development, language and literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, creative arts and physical development. They will also learn about the unwavering love of Jesus Christ, which will be presented through songs, prayers and age-appropriate activities. When your child transitions from this stage of development they will have a firm grasp on the world around them and will be developed academically, spiritually, socially and emotionally.

 Curriculum - Investigator's Club

Children are born explorers. Naturally curious, they want to know about the world and their place in it. The InvestiGator Club preschool curriculum taps into this sense of wonder by connecting play, imagination, and content to the real world. “Purposeful inquiry,” the heart of The InvestiGator Club, challenges children to use their senses, to ask questions, and to find the answers in a supportive, language- and literacy-rich environment.

Children learn when we teach them.

With today’s high standards and expectations, every minute in the school day is precious. We give you the tools and means for maximizing teaching time in critical subject areas. Look for explicit instruction and model lessons in the Teacher Guide for each Investigation.

Children learn by doing.

Our program is full of active, hands-on activities. We understand the power of play and imagination in young children’s development. Ideas for physical education and outdoor fun are also part of every Investigation.

Children learn from each other.

Helping you create a community of learners is one of our missions. Look for opportunities to solve problems together and discuss and share.
