Lehigh Children's Academy

Using technology in the service of healthy development, learning and creativity.

 

Curriculum > Technology

Philosophy
When used wisely, technology can enhance early childhood learning when integrated into the environment, curriculum and daily routines, and support your child’s optimal learning and development.

Appropriate technology use can also enhance the use of essential materials, activities and interactions in the classroom, support learning relationships and offer opportunities for your child to share experiences with peers and adults that is enjoyable and engaging. Lehigh Children’s Academy carefully selects and uses technology in the service of healthy development, learning and creativity.  

SMART Academy
Lehigh Children’s Academy uses technology as a tool for engagement, participation and play to enhance curriculum based learning.  Assistive technology provides equitable access for children with special needs and enhances the learning environment for all children.

We believe technology should not replace activities that are important for your child’s development like creative play, real life exploration, physical activity, conversation and social interactions. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics and the White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity recommendations which discourage screen media and screen time for children under two years of age and recommends limited screen time for older children.

Integration in Curriculum
Lehigh Children’s Academy provides a balance of activities for your child.  Technology and digital media are valuable tools that we use intentionally with your child to extend and support active, hands-on, creative and authentic engagement with their peers and their world.

Your child is developing their sense of initiative and creativity.  They are curious about the world around them and curious about learning.  They explore their ability to create and communicate using a variety of media like crayons, markers, paints, blocks and dramatic play materials, and use creative movement, like singing and dancing, to express their ideas and experiences. Technology provides one more outlet for demonstrating their creativity and learning.
