Currently, this grantee uses The Creative Curriculum for Preschool. This curriculum establishes a framework of child development knowledge, combined with best practices, teacher involvement and family participation to provide high quality preschool experiences to foster school readiness. The Creative Curriculum for Preschool focuses on 4 domain areas: Social Emotional Development, Physical Development, Cognitive Development, and Language Development. A set of fifty (50) curriculum goals are used to guide children’s learning, assess development, and plan activities. Our current program plans and curriculum plan specify goals, experiences, roles of teacher, roles of family, and materials that reflect best practice, research, and sound childhood theory. Some of the strategies used by our program include: set a caring consistent environment that promotes positive behaviors; set a caring consistent environment that enhances child’s understanding of self as an individual and as a member of a group; a positive social/emotional climate will be provided to enhance each child’s development; provide for the special needs of children with disabilities; provide each child with an education program that meets each child's individual needs; provide a balanced daily program of child initiated and teacher directed learning activities; provide a child centered multi-cultural experience; foster independence in each child; establish methods to ease transition between activities; encourage play and active exploration to support development of gross motor skills and to enhance self-confidence, independence, and autonomy; provide opportunities for the development of physical skills; provide opportunities for recognition of letters and symbols that support emerging literacy and numeracy development; engage children in verbal and nonverbal methods of communication; and provide time for songs, stories, and rhymes.
