Our Program

Rooted in Connection & Playful Learning 

At MVNS, we believe that children need an open environment in which to grow and learn, while receiving the guidance they need for positive social interactions. Play is the child’s innate, natural method of learning and socialization; it is through play that children explore and understand the world around them.

What is Contextual 
&
Emergent 
Curriculum?

An abundance of opportunities for imagination, creativity, friendly risk-taking, and problem-solving empower children, while providing social constructivist learning experiences. Adding the word “contextual” to “curriculum” places strong emphasis on the idea that learning happens in a context — in relation to and as a result of experiences, environment, relationships, family, community, and culture. In other words, our curriculum is a continuous interaction, exchange, and collaboration among teachers, children, and parents. It is, in particular, shaped around the emerging interests, ideas, and wonders of the children as communicated through their play and behavior. Each year, our curriculum is weaved together by the members of our community and the unique stories and experiences of every individual. 

There may be no better way to communicate what we do than through images.
