Creative Curriculum

CREATIVE CURRICULUM…

The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children’s learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. While keeping the original environmentally-based approach it clearly defines the teacher’s vital role in connecting content, teaching, and learning for preschool children. It features goals and objectives linked directly to the valid and reliable assessment tool that our teachers use to gage the progress of each child individually.

HOW CHILDREN DEVELOP…

Knowing how children develop and learn is the basis for planning the program, selecting materials, and guiding children’s learning. The Creative Curriculum enhances social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development and because children do not master a skill all at once, each objective has three steps that illustrate the typical sequence of development.

THE CLASSROOM…

The teachers work hard to provide an engaging area for the children to learn and play. Each classroom has interest areas that may consist of Blocks, Dramatic Play, Toys and Games, Art, Library, Discovery, Sand and Water, Music and Movement, Cooking, or Computers. This combined with the outdoor spaces provides a rich and stimulating environment for the children to thrive.

THE FAMILY’S ROLE…

Home and school are your child’s two most important worlds and children must bridge these two worlds every day. If home and school are connected in positive and respectful ways, children feel secure. Our teachers work hard to build a true partnership by valuing the family’s role in a child’s education and recognize how much they can accomplish by working with families.
