Curriculum

We use Creative Curriculum® for Birth through Kindergarten children.

The Creative Curriculum® is a developmentally appropriate, comprehensive curriculum that promotes positive outcomes for children.

With both the Common Core State Standards and the curriculum’s 38 objectives, identifying age-appropriate expectations for development and learning helps educators and parents know what they need to do to help children get where they need to be.

Covering all important areas of children’s development and learning—social–emotional, physical, language, cognitive, literacy, math, science and technology, social studies, and the arts, as well as English-language acquisition— The Creative Curriculum’s objectives include predictors of school success and are based on school readiness standards. So throughout the early childhood learning experience, children are being prepared in all the ways that matter for later success in school.

Nationally known for its forward-thinking, rigorously researched model, The Creative Curriculum®  has been trusted for decades by early childhood educators in classrooms across the country. It focuses on meeting the needs of individual children, while honoring and respecting the role that teachers play in making learning engaging and meaningful for every child. The curriculum components were designed to provide everything needed for an engaging and effective program.
 
The Foundation offers insight into the most current research and best practices for early childhood education.  The curriculum components also include built-in support for all learners, with specific sections of guidance for working with English- and dual-language learners,
advanced learners, and children with disabilities.
