At Wholesome Generation we believe passionately that learning should be an adventure. Your child’s experience is bounded only by his or her imagination and dreams.
Our curriculum is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to childhood education, which encourages young children and their teachers to explore, question, and discover in a stimulating environment. Children express interests and ideas, research for further information, reflect on the experience and form conclusions. Through this process, children develop confidence and independence with encouragement from parents, teachers and community members.
In addition to personal curricula, learning is woven into fun and creative themes to make learning meaningful, and carried out in project-based learning groups. Group activities promote social development. Enrichment programs for all children include movement, art, music, exercise programs, yoga/dance, nature studies, trips to local community organizations, organic/urban farms, the Nature + Science Center and many Museums, gardening, culinary art sessions and a French language program, of course all age appropriate.
In addition to our emphasis on organic nutrition, we explore gardening with our students and families, and children will learn concepts and models of local food culture, garden ecology and environmental awareness in an experiential learning environment. Creative hands-on activities include lessons in composting, beneficial bugs, water systems, and seasonal growing cycles for Central Texas.
Environmental education integrated with our wholesome curricula and organic nutrition creates an expressive, fun and holistic approach to learning.
Our Staff + Healthy Ratios
An early childhood development center experience is only as good as the teachers involved. Wholesome educators are critical to helping develop the whole child. Wholesome Generation is committed to attracting, retaining and developing exceptional education professionals.
Our staff to child ratios exceed anything level set forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
