At Garden State Academy, we utilize Creative Curriculum; an interactive teaching method. Our program focuses on a series of disciplines that build upon one another, much like a ladder. Children excel at learning when taught using real life experiences, and better retain knowledge through personal experience and analytic thinking rather than memorization. We provide children with an opportunity to work at their own pace as well as in small groups, while emphasizing differentiated instruction. Developmentally appropriate practices are inspired from Maria Montessori and the Reggio Emilia approach.
Our teachers constantly refine the classroom environment to enhance learning. Our school focuses on a variety of calm and comfortable spaces, such as art center, block center, dramatic play area, science and technology, sensory area, writing center, literacy center, social studies and more. These areas can be viewed under the "Our School" page.
