10 Early Childhood Learning Domains
Engaging Monthly Themes
- These ten learning domains are unpacked across eight monthly themes, shown below, and 32 weekly sub-themes, providing a structured environment for a full year of learning.
- Each theme includes an original Quaver story in English and Spanish, plus favorite books from classic children’s literature and an adaptable special project.
- Themes like Communities and Amazing Nature build on concrete knowledge children naturally have and represent big ideas to engage curious young minds, connecting fantasy and the real world with animated characters, stories, and songs.
Welcome to Pre-K! focuses on acclimating children to their new school, schedule, and routines, as well as providing a welcoming and nurturing environment for the children.
Communities introduces children to their classroom, the school as a whole, and their neighborhood. Children learn how they can be responsible citizens and about multiple jobs people do to contribute to their communities.
Amazing Nature expands children’s worldview by exploring the natural world, specifically with reference to trees, plants, and the cycle of food production. Children learn how the sun and Earth interact to create cycles of life or seasons.
Healthy Me leads children to explore food production and ways of healthy cooking and eating. They then use knowledge about healthy foods to learn how to keep their bodies healthy through nutrition, exercise, rest, and good care.
Living Creatures moves children to explore the natural world, this time with reference to animals. Primarily science-focused, days also build on children’s developing ecological worldview discussed in previous themes.
Transportation and Movement studies the movements of people and things. Children learn about different methods of transportation and start understanding the connections between food production, healthy living, communities, living creatures, and movement.
Construction teaches how and why communities are built. Children learn how structures are made—from planning and design to use. They then spend time exploring structures where people can live, play, and work—and they even create their own play structures.
A Celebration of Music portrays music as the universal language that unifies people and communities throughout the world. They then learn how music is created and celebrated in different cultures around the world and even build their own instruments.
