Curriculum

Happy children love to learn!

Our Bravo! curriculum is designed by our in-house education team to facilitate learning through play. Children naturally learn best through hands-on exploration and discovery. In the process, they grow to love learning, preparing them for a happy and successful future. Each day, children might solve math problems, play pretend, do yoga or build friendships. Within Bravo!, each of these moments is tailored to nurture children and help them grow. At Doodle Bugs!, every interaction is a learning experience.

Early Childhood Curriculum® is an innovative program that combines theme-related, age-appropriate classroom experiences, amazing enrichment programs and our series of center events.
