At the heart of the Teaching Strategies approach to early childhood education is The Creative Curriculum, the country’s leading scientifically based, comprehensive curriculum for programs serving children from birth to age 5. It combines the latest research and the freshest ideas into a forward-thinking approach to learning-one that honors creativity and respects the role that teachers play in making learning exciting and relevant for every child in their classrooms.
Our center uses The Creative Curriculum series. This is a hands-on curriculum where children learn through play-based experiences as well as teacher directed activities. Children in our center have time to play, draw, sing, learn, and explore. They receive lots of love and attention from our friendly, qualified staff.
Lesson plans and daily schedules provide the basic structure for the day’s activities. Lesson plans are aligned with PA Department of Education Standards. Daily lesson plans have a theme of the week that contribute to the theme(s) of the month. Children are involved in hands-on activities as well as teacher directed experiences. We believe that children learn best through play; therefore, we structure our program so that children learn through experiences in interest centers located throughout the classroom.
