Tools of the Mind Curriculum

At Pascual LeDoux Academy, we teach using the Tools of the Mind curriculum. Teachers individualize instruction, meeting each child where he or she is in development each day.  Children engage in rich make-believe play with peers, have the opportunity for free play, and engage in small group and partnered literacy, math and science learning activities throughout the day.

Teachers manage transitions and set up a classroom environment and schedule to support children’s self-regulation and executive function development. Children learn fingerplays, songs and play movement games to recharge as needed. A child in a Tools classroom is partnered with, and plays with every other child in the class, and has a teacher focused on the development of the whole child. Tools classrooms are happy places to learn to and grow!
