Our Curriculum

Our curriculum focuses on learning through discovery and play. Theme-based lessons are hands-on to provide children with the opportunity to make independent choices. Children are encouraged to participate in all class activities and learning centers. Through play in centers and outdoors, children develop social skills, fine and gross motor skills, and are guided toward appropriate conflict resolution practices. Basic skills are taught on an individual basis, as well as in a group setting. Math, science, social studies, handwriting, and pre-reading skills are integrated into daily lessons and routines. Learning is achieved through developmentally appropriate practices.

We expect children to experience individual successes, as well as, display an awareness of others and a sense of commitment toward the larger community. We expect children to display behaviors appropriate to a group setting. We expect children to develop a love of learning through self-directed and teacher-directed activities. We expect children to have fun, feel nurtured, and become comfortable in their environment.

Physical Education

In addition to daily curriculum enrichment, we offer daily specials instruction with our HSLC Specials Coordinator for ages 12 months to 9 years old in our gym.

The purpose of our formal physical education program is to develop necessary skills in the following areas:  large gross motor skills, hand/eye coordination, following 3 step directions, sportsmanship, basic sport skills instruction and so much more.

Formal physical education instruction teaches both children and adults alike necessary stress management skills while encouraging the participants to lead a healthier lifestyle in a fun and innovative way.

Holly Springs Learning Center fully believes that:

  • A quality early childhood education creates the foundation for future learning successes.
  • Learning to communicate with peers within a structured environment, and on a social level, is necessary for young children.
  • Respect for self, others, and the environment is something that is taught and earned. Learned at an early age, this provides children with the tools they need to be a contributing member of a larger community.
  • Young children learn through experience and hands-on activities.
  • Teachers at the preschool level should facilitate learning, not dictate activity.
  • Children should be guided toward positive decisions and choices, allowing self-esteem to flourish.
  • Children should be nurtured and made to feel special. They should be recognized as an individual, not only as part of a larger group.
  • Our school is an extension of the home. Parents, teachers, and administrators must work together to create a warm, comfortable, academic environment for all children in attendance.
  • Each lesson each day should benefit the child’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth.
  • Learning should be fun!


Our goals are to:

  • Provide children with a safe, stimulating, nurturing environment.
  • Create an environment that encourages independence and good decision-making.
  • Provide children with experiences that promote positive growth and high self-esteem.
  • Provide children with a foundation with which they can build future successes.
  • Successfully blend school, family, and community.
  • Enable children to interact and solve conflicts with peers in a positive way.
  • Instill a love of learning through meaningful and fun lessons.
  • Guide each child to develop a sense of social and personal responsibility.
  • Expose children to and involve them in the arts and multicultural activities.
  • Provide experiences that enhance creativity.
  • Provide a curriculum that is well-defined and caters to individual learning styles.
  • Employ teachers who teach and model respect and positive emotional, social, intellectual, and physical traits.
  • Help each child find happiness and satisfaction in his/her accomplishments.
  • Aid each child in the development of fine and gross motor skills.
  • Respond to the needs of families and provide opportunities for parent education.
  • Respond to the needs of the community and display a commitment to community efforts.
  • Provide children with a sense of belonging and well-being, and a love for learning that will continue throughout their school years.
