Our Curriculum & Philosophy
Welcome to the new Fusion Early Learning Website! We still have a few pages under construction…including this one. However most of the site is ready to go so feel free to Contact Us with any questions. Thank you!
ed·u·ca·tion·al / neu·ro·sci·ence
Definition: The body of knowledge that represents applying brain research to classroom practice. Also called “Mind, Brain and Education,” this field of study looks at how what we are learning about the human brain can affect the curricular, instructional and assessment decisions that teachers make on a daily basis. (“How the Brain Learns,” David Sousa 2011)
Circuit Theory Education
cir·cuit / the·o·ry / ed·u·ca·tion
Definition: An approach to education, based in Educational Neuroscience, that divides learning experiences into separate but related events, thus creating a complete “circuit” of new information being presented to the learner. Events are divided into three distinct subject areas:
BLUE: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking
GREEN: Science, Social Science, History and Math
RED: Visual Arts, Music, Theater and Dance
A circuit is complete once a learner has participated in all three events of the circuit. At Fusion Early Learning, our early learners complete one circuit every day they are in school. One circuit at Fusion equals approximately three hours.
pre·school / courses
Definition: Month-long explorations into a subject matter.
Preschool courses at Fusion Early Learning are designed to excite the young learner and expose them to ideas and content not typically taught during the preschool years. The content is designed to not only engage young students, but also to start introducing them to the many wonders of the world they live in. Courses are delivered through Circuit Theory Education with teachers working through a variety of lesson formats best fitting to the subject matter and the individual needs of the students.
Examples of preschool courses at Fusion Early Learning:
- Culture Shock: Authors, Inventors and Music that Changed the Word
- The Evolution of Modern Transportation
- Life During Medieval Times: Life, Castles and Treasured Folklore
- A Culinary Tour of the World
