Creative Curriculum 5th Edition

Based on our commitment to provide families the very best educational offering for their child, our center is very excited to announce the use of the newest edition of Creative Curriculum, published by Teaching Strategies, Inc.

Creative Curriculum is one of the most used and highly respected curriculum models in the country. It is a research based program focused on 38 objectives for development that are aligned with our own state standards for early learning. Having this teaching sequence of standards ensures that each lesson taught covers the skills and concepts that are appropriate for the age and development of your child. The curriculum includes components for Infants, Toddlers, Twos (2nd edition) and for Preschool (5th edition). This set of materials includes foundation research volumes, teaching guides, children’s literature and ebooks, Mighty Minute transition activities, Intentional Teaching cards, and online support and assessment.

The Teaching Guides feature “studies” where the preschool children will conduct and in-depth investigation of fun and familiar topics. Children will ask questions about each topic and then seek answers through play, experimentation, and discovery. These studies will allow children to explore science and social studies while developing skills in language, math, technology, and the arts. Our teachers will adapt their lessons and add other studies based on the interests of your children!
