Our curriculum is integrated across all domains of child development - physical, social, emotional, linguistic, and cognitive. It is relevant, meaningful, and based on prior experiences allowing the children to make connections. We use the Creative Curriculum for Infants through Pre-K. The most important goal of the Creative Curriculum is to help children to become enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to have their own thoughts.
