Learning and Curriculum

Notre Dame is renowned for academic learning at every grade level, and our Toddler Program will be no different. Our youngest students will focus on three primary lessons each season throughout the school year, drawn from our curriculum as an authorized International Baccalaureate World School.

1-  Who We Are: Focusing on what we look like, our families, our friends, similarities and differences of all the people around us. August-September.

2-  How We Express Ourselves: Focusing on feelings and emotions, how to work through them, why and when we feel them. January-March.

3-  How the World Works: Focusing on nature and animals, where they live, what they eat. April-June.
