Mill Plain Children’s Academy is a Child Development Center that follows a philosophy of teaching developed by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) called “Developmentally Appropriate Practices” DAP.
At Mill Plain Children's Academy our classrooms are made up of "Learning Centers". The children are empowered to make their own choices, moving through the centers on their own.
As a theme based curriculum year round school, we are able to introduce information for learning using many different avenues and all 5 senses. These themes are used in all activities within a child’s’ day.
DAP (Developmentally Appropriate Practices)
Our school is a themed based curriculum and we use these themes in our daily schedule and lesson plans. The themes are used to plan projects, group activities, books, field trips, individual workstations and learning centers. We integrate self-help skills, trial and error and creative ability in each of our daily schedules.
