Each of our preschool classrooms use The Creative Curriculum. This curriculum is consistent with the ASYMCAHRs early childhood education philosophy based on Kindergarten readiness, parent connections and professional development. Throughout the year we use the Creative Curriculum Assessment Tool Kit incorporating parent partnerships to track each child's development. Assessments guide teachers in designing lesson plans meeting individual needs. Parents are encouraged to visit the classroom regularly and attend special events.
What is Creative Curriculum?
The country's leading scientifically based, comprehensive curriculum for programs serving children from birth to age 5. Provides teachers with tools to plan & implement developmentally appropriate activities that promote children's social emotional development & learning in the core areas of literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies.
