Children are engaged with their teachers in a program framework called Creative Curriculum. Creative Curriculum is an early childhood development approach that is rooted in educational philosophy and theory as well as in practice. The curriculum focuses on how children develop and learn, based on their individual interests, the learning environment and the role of the teacher.
The framework for this curriculum takes advantage of a child’s natural curiosity to explore the world around them and is composed of the following eight core areas.
Literacy: Includes seven components: increased vocabulary; phonological awareness; knowledge of letters and words; comprehension; understanding of books; and literacy as a sense of enjoyment
Mathematics: Children use a variety of math related toys, tools and games
Science: Young children love science and learning about the world around them--includes physical, life and earth science components.
Social studies: Our social studies program is the study of people and how they relate to geography, how they live, the environment around them and past events.
Arts: Art is designing, creating and exploring. We include dance, music, theater and visual arts such as painting and clay.
Technology: You’ll find children in our early childhood program using a variety of tools, both for play and for real.
Healthy Habits: It’s critical to help young children develop lifelong healthy habits. We model good eating habits in our centers and offer a variety of physical activities.
Social, Moral and Spiritual Development: Our staff celebrates and encourages the values of love, respect, honesty, responsibility and diversity.
