Curriculum & Conferences

We use Beyond Textbooks as our Curriculum. This program is based on the Arizona Early Learning Standards. During the first few weeks of school, children are given a baseline test to determine their individual academic needs. Additional assessments are used throughout the year to track progress and guide instruction/activities.

Parent/Teacher Conferences occur twice a year and informal conferences will take place anytime throughout the year as necessary.

Program Philosophy

Morenci Early Learning Center offers a developmentally appropriate early childhood program that meets the needs of the “whole child” and encourages the power of play. Our curriculum respects both the age and individual needs of each child. We provide a safe, healthy learning environment that will advance your child’s physical and intellectual competence, communication and creativity. Social and emotional development is encouraged to nurture self-esteem, social responsibility and social skills.

• Social/Emotional
• Approaches to Learning (literacy, math, science, technology, social studies, and the arts)
