The Creative Curriculum allows our Pre-K faculty address the social/emotional and academic needs of our youngest students during our ½ day Pre-Kindergarten programming. Creative Curriculum balances teacher‐planned and child‐initiated learning, emphasizing responsiveness to children's strengths, interests, needs, and learning styles. It helps teachers plan and implement content‐rich, developmentally appropriate programs that support active learning and promote children's progress in all developmental areas that include social, emotional, cognitive and physical development.
Literacy instruction in the Creative Curriculum classroom focuses on creating an environment and experiences that inspires children to read and write. This includes: literacy as a source of enjoyment, vocabulary and language, phonological awareness, knowledge of print, letters and words, comprehension, and books and other texts. The Pre-K faculty also builds upon children’s interests to promote mathematics learning as well, with the goal of assisting students to fully understand mathematical concepts and skills through application.
