Infants

SFLC‘s curriculum is a high-quality Early Childhood Program as established by the Virginia Star Quality Initiative Program and designed with the expertise of professional educators.

We recognize that the growth of a child is a gradual developmental process unique to each individual. Our programs are designed to support each child’s natural curiosity for learning. Young children learn by doing and are motivated by their own desire to make sense of their world.

At Salem Fields Learning Center, your child will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of hands-on activities which are designed to support social, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive development. Our teachers closely observe to see what each child understands and then pose additional challenges to encourage their thinking further. Thus, our learning environment is child-directed and teacher supported with children learning information in a meaningful context rather than through drill exercise or rote memorization.

Christ-Focused Curriculum

As a faith-based learning center, we also utilize a Christian/Bible based Curriculum called Orange. The Orange Curriculum focuses on helping children learn about and develop a relationship with God utilizing lessons and activities for the child’s specific age and stage of development. The curriculum is taught in both a large group setting and classroom setting with various daily activities, games, and small group time.
