In addition to the Abeka program, teachers also utilize several other research-backed educational resources to ensure a balance of play-based learning and teacher-led instruction. Our academic instruction aligns with Virginia’s Early Learning and Development Standards (ELDS).
MHCA also uses an assessment method that tracks and informs instruction at the beginning, middle, and end of the school year. Parent-teacher conferences are held following each assessment to discuss each child’s developmental progress throughout the year.
Various other supplemental activities are used, and children are actively engaged through the use of Centers and Pretend Play that develop social and emotional learning and motor skills development.
Students will receive a 21st century learning experience. Technology is utilized in all classrooms as an instructional tool. Ultimately, our engaging, developmentally appropriate programs ensure children are prepared with the skills they need to be successful in their transition to Kindergarten.
