We offer a positive learning environment with an emergent and open curriculum based on the dynamic interests of your child and you, their family. Gan Malibu celebrates the unique contribution of each child to the group.
We believe that your child will best acquire knowledge through their experiences, and that infants learn most effectively when actively engaged in the process. Your child will be encouraged to express their own interests and abilities through play, language, and artistic exploration. The everyday experience involves music, movement, science, art and nature.
In our infant center we try and personalize a schedule that works for each child, increasing naps or feedings as necessary, but we have a general schedule we follow each day.
