Marlboro Township Schools implemented a blended learning instructional environment during the 2011 school year. By 2013, the MTPS became a 1:1 learning environment with the use of Chromebooks and various educational technology programs. At this time, the number of available digital tools increased greatly and the district now implements a mix of free programs such as G-Suite for Education (formerly Google Apps for Education) and district budgeted programs such as Study Island, ST Math, IXL Math, Achieve3000, RAZ Kids, Reading Eggs, BrainPop, Discovery Education and Pear Deck to name a few. MTPS has a robust, comprehensive, and collaborative action plan to implement personalized learning for all students.
Our mission at DAELC is to provide a safe, nurturing, and engaging learning environment for all students. We strive to foster a life-long love of learning in each child and empower each child to reach his or her full potential.
We accomplish this by aligning our instruction to the Common Core State Standards. Theme-based and project-based instructional models are used that allow students to explore the world around them while acquiring the foundational skills needed for later learning. Children are challenged to collaborate, communicate, and think critically about concepts being explored. The social and emotional development of our students is supported through structured social opportunities such as, cooperative learning centers and free play. Students participate in Art and Music classes that provide them with an understanding of musical and artistic principles. At DAELC we recognize the vital role that technology will play in our students’ lives. Teachers have Promethean Boards in each classroom that they use to bring their lessons to life and engage students. Students regularly use iPads to explore new concepts and support the acquisition of basic skills.
Parents are encouraged to be active participants in their children’s education. Each teacher maintains a website that is regularly updated to include current information about units of study and ways to support learning at home. Students regularly come home with homework that engages parents in cooperative activities.
As you can see, there are wonderful things happening at DAELC! We look forward to having your child join our ‘Rainbow of Stars’.
