Our program uses the nationally recognized Creative Curriculum ®, which incorporates the latest research and best practices to address the learning needs of toddlers and preschoolers by using age-specific objectives for learning and development.
Activities and teaching strategies are challenging, yet within the children’s reach. This curriculum helps children acquire social competence and the skills they need to succeed as learners. Creative Curriculum is aligned with national standards for pre-school readiness. We also incorporate STEAM ® (science, technology, engineering, art, math) approach to learning, with highly interactive activities to promote critical thinking, problem solving and team building skills, enabling children to experience learning in fun and exciting ways!
