our programs: Curriculum

Based on established research and updated regularly to include new findings from the field of early childhood education, The Creative Curriculum will be the framework for all program initiatives at The Children's Center. When used as intended, teachers and children are engaged in an ongoing cycle of observing, guiding, learning and assessing children's progress. All lesson planning and decision making takes into account the ways children develop and learn, the learning environment, and the activities children use to enhance learning. Teachers will develop lesson plans and guide children through daily interactive, hands-on activities. At the same time, teachers will introduce concepts such as cooperation and fairness into all aspects of classroom life to help children with social and emotional development.

The Creative Curriculum focuses on four goals and objectives:

  • Social/Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Cognitive Development
  • Language Development

In using these objectives, Infants, Toddler and Twos will learn about themselves and others, moving, the world, and communicating. Three and four year olds will learn about sense of self, responsibility for self and others, prosocial behavior, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, learning and problem solving, logical thinking, representation and symbolic thinking, listening and speaking, reading and writing.
