First Years University Academics
Admission is open to children between 6 weeks and 12 years of age.
At First Years University children are individuals and we strongly believe in “respect for the child”. We incorporate a project-based curriculum with emphasis on “Hands on Minds on learning”.
We believe the more senses used to explore while learning, the greater children’s ability to understand in a greater capacity. This is accomplished through a variety of experiences. Each day is divided into activity periods and during these times children are gaining skills to assist with physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development.
All classroom environments are age appropriate with well-selected materials, and equipment designed to assist Teachers with children’s exploration and learning. Area play is provided, and each child may select activities of interest including arts & crafts, science, math, reading, language arts, exploration and more.
We know that becoming a skilled reader involves the ability to identify words (decoding) and to understand their meaning and the message they convey (text comprehension). So we teach skills sequentially
Writing is the primary basis upon which your work, your learning, and your intellect will be judged—in college, in the workplace, and in the community.
It is next to impossible to live an independent life without basic math skills. Students may ask why math is necessary, but quality math instruction ensures that this question is asked infrequently
Develop skills of planning and conducting investigations, gathering information, team work and evaluating their findings. Act responsibly when using scientific equipment and applying scientific knowledge
While many skills have become obsolete in the digital age, map reading remains an important tool for building children’s spatial reasoning skills and helping them make sense of our world.
