Curriculum and Assessment
The Creative CurriculumThe Creative Curriculum is an award-winning, research-based curriculum featuring exploration and discovery as a way of learning, enabling children to develop confidence, creativity and critical thinking skills. Our teachers will implement a developmentally appropriate, content-rich program for children with diverse backgrounds and skill levels.
The Creative Curriculum is based on 38 objectives for development and learning and are fully aligned with Pennsylvania Department of Education Early Learning Standards for infants, toddlers and pre-kindergarten. The curriculum offers opportunities to individualize instruction by helping the teachers meet the needs of every learner, with a particular focus on language development. Just like the Common Core State Standards which provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, The Creative Curriculum’s 38 objectives include progressions of development and learning that identify widely held expectations for children of particular ages or classes/grades. When children enter kindergarten, their learning has already focused on the skills that are essential for success with regard to the Common Core State Standards.
