Our Educational Approach
Our Role in Your Child’s Development
Our team of dedicated professionals is here to guide your child through their crucial early years. Research states the idea that 90% of a child’s brain develops before the age of 5. We believe our role during these formative years is to build the foundation for a promising life-long love of learning and social-emotional growth.
We’re Dedicated to the Whole Child
We recognize that children have diverse needs encompassing physical, social, emotional, and academic aspects. That’s why we embrace the Seven Domains of Learning, addressing every facet of your child’s development.
We Prioritize Inclusivity
We embrace diversity in all its forms. Our purposefully designed play spaces cater to every child’s unique background, family, culture, and language. This inclusive atmosphere fosters awareness, independence, and self-regulation that prepares them for a lifetime of positive interactions and confidence.
We Tailor Our Curriculum
We understand that every child is different and learns at their own pace. That’s why we customize lessons to meet the unique needs of every child, celebrating their individuality. Our curriculum is centered around child-led explorations that are scaffolded and enhanced by our teachers as they work towards reaching their developmental milestones and prepare for a successful transition to kindergarten.
Your Child’s Day
At Celebree of Hampstead, we believe in the power of rituals and routines. Consistency in a child’s daily schedule helps create a stable and secure environment, offering them a dependable framework. This consistency allows them to anticipate and understand the flow of their day, fostering a comforting sense of familiarity. By incorporating routines and rituals into our educational approach, we ensure that our students thrive in an environment that prioritizes their emotional well-being and development.
In our classrooms, you can expect to see:
At Celebree, children start their day with a Brain Smart Start, where we unite, disengage stress, connect, and commit. This is an engaging Conscious Discipline routine which helps build the school family and teaches children effective problem-solving tools in a fun, developmentally appropriate way. At the end of their Morning Connection, children also go over class jobs and review the daily visual schedule, setting them up for the day ahead!
At Celebree, our classrooms are equipped with engaging Interest Areas, also known as “Play Spaces” or “Centers,” for children to explore: Dramatic Play, Art, Blocks, Science/Discovery, Library, Toys & Games, Music & Movement, and Sensory. Twice a day every day, our Interest Areas open up for play; children select their Interest Areas based on what they are “interested” in that day, allowing our youngest minds to learn and play at their own pace and in their own way!
At Celebree, we believe mealtime is a vital part of the day that highlights many of the learning domains, especially social-emotional literacy. Our Mealtime Philosophy states, “We believe in the whole child and are committed to providing meaningful mealtime experiences in a relaxed and conversational environment. We believe the early years are a critical time for the development of healthy habits and are dedicated to creating a foundation for successful mealtime routines.”
At Celebree, we’re firm believers in open-ended process art. We don’t see art as a finished product; we see it as an experience that gives your child the freedom to explore, imagine, and embrace their independence. Learning does not come from reaching an end result; it comes from the creative process itself. Let your child’s imagination soar as they embark on a colorful journey of self-expression and discovery.
Rituals + Behaviors = Results
7 Domains of Learning
We embrace the Seven Domains of Learning, which address the physical, social, emotional, and academic needs of children.
Personal and Social Development
Children learn to develop healthy relationships with adults and their peers while cultivating a positive personal identity.
Children are taught to channel their natural curiosity to articulate questions and draw conclusions about the world around them.
This discipline focuses on numbers and their relationships, in addition to the geometric concepts that explain spatial awareness.
Language and Literacy
The basis of learning, this domain opens the door of communication through writing and drawing as well as grammar and comprehension.
This sphere examines societal relationships based on social structures and the connections between people and their communities.
An exploration into visual arts, music, dance and theater, this domain celebrates distinctive expression of emotions and ideas.
Physical Development and Health
Children are taught regard for health and nutrition in addition to the benefits of exercise to develop a strong mind and body.

The Celebree Ecosystem
Teaching Strategies: Empowering Educators, Engaging Families
We’ve teamed up with Teaching Strategies to create a high-quality ecosystem that seamlessly works together to provide teachers the resources they need to prepare and execute on nurturing and purposeful lessons and environments while simultaneously keeping families up to date on daily care events and the curriculum occurring in the classroom.
Elements of Teaching Strategies:
Celebree teachers utilize Creative Curriculum and have full access to a cloud-based database full of robust activities and interest-based studies to help build comprehensive lesson plans.
We use the nation-wide approved assessment platform, Teaching Strategies GOLD, for observation, collection and further implementation based on developmental milestones.
Through our electronic individualized daily report platform, Tadpoles, our teachers can communicate with families about what their children are doing in school so that the lessons learned every day can be infused into life at home.

The achievement of state or national accreditation is considered the pinnacle of early childhood quality standards.

All of our schools are either currently accredited or actively working towards accreditation.
