We follow the Creative Curriculum see www.teachingstrategies.com. This curriculum propounds the philosophy of educating the whole child including all areas of development: physical, cognitive, language, social and emotional development. It stresses the idea of a developmentally appropriate environment and activities.
Centers are clearly marked in the classroom and the teacher understands how each aspect of development is to be addressed. Children are individually assessed by means of the Individual Child Profile and these assessments are reported to parents on the Family Conference sheet during parent conferences. The whole group, as well as individuals, is taken into account during our weekly planning and the curriculum is adjusted accordingly.
