The Creative Curriculum is an early childhood curriculum that focuses on project-based investigations as a means for children to apply skills addressing 4 different areas of development: social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language.
The Curriculum is designed to foster development of the whole child through teacher-led small and large group activities centered around 11 interest areas: blocks, dramatic play, toys and games, art, library, discovery, sand and water, music and movement, cooking, computers and outdoors.
The Curriculum provides teachers with details on child development, classroom organization, teaching strategies, and engaging families in the learning process. Child assessments are an important part of the curriculum, and are done every 3 months to see what the child has progressed.
