Brentano offers two program models that service students for half a day. Each classroom is staffed with certified early childhood teachers and a paraprofessional. Both programs provide unique and special learning opportunities for all learners. The blended program specializes in targeting areas in which students need additional support. Both models are outstanding! Students exit the program ready for kindergarten and beyond.
Both programs follow the Illinois Early Learning Standards, and a theme-based science and math-focused curricula which encourages literacy, mathematic development, technology and other kindergarten readiness skills.
Throughout the year our students are engaged in learning about Animals, Health and Nutrition, Family and many other exciting themes that children and families enjoy. During these Project based Learning experiences our families are invited to be part of the learning process with their children.
