Creative Curriculum

As the field of early childhood education has evolved, so too has The Creative Curriculum®, incorporating the latest research and best practices and taking the needs of every type of learner into account. Using exploration and discovery as a way of learning, The Creative Curriculum enables children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills. Creative Curriculum offers daily opportunities to individualize instruction and addresses all the important areas of learning, from social-emotional and math to technology and the arts. Their nationally recognized program is based on 38 objectives for development and learning, which are fully aligned with the Early Learning Framework as well as early learning standards for every state.

High Scope

Beginning with the Perry Preschool Study, HighScope revolutionized early childhood education with a new approach to teaching and learning. Research based and child focused, the HighScope Curriculum uses a carefully designed process — called "active participatory learning" - to achieve powerful, positive outcomes. As teachers, parents, and educational researchers have discovered, the HighScope Preschool Curriculum not only helps young children excel in language and cognitive learning but also promotes independence, curiosity, decision-making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving - the fundamental skills that help determine success in adult life. 

Handwriting Without Tears

The Handwriting Without Tears® curriculum draws from years of innovation and research to provide developmentally appropriate, multisensory tools and strategies for the classroom. The program follows research that demonstrates children learn more effectively by actively doing, with materials that address all styles of learning. Researchers have highlighted the relationship between handwriting and composition skills. They are supporting what elementary educators see on a daily basis: good handwriting habits foster student success. Children need explicit instruction to achieve legible and fluent handwriting.
