Introducing FLIGHT Curriculum Framework

Play, Participation, Possibilities

Child Development Dayhomes prides itself on our dedication to children’s well-being, development, and growth. That is why we incorporate the innovative and unique FLIGHT Framework in our everyday practice; a framework that embraces children’s experience in the world and turns it into meaningful opportunities for development.

FLIGHT stands out from other childcare curriculums in that it is flexible and adaptive. This allows the Dayhome Educator to align with the child’s natural experience of the world. Everyday activities are transformed into and viewed as meaningful moments for development and growth.
