The Creative Curriculum®

We utilize the The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool, and award-winning curriculum which nurtures the whole child in all areas of development: social-emotional, physical, language and cognitive. 

The Creative Curriculum® is a comprehensive, research-based early childhood education framework for children from infancy through pre-kindergarten. Emphasizing a play-based, child-centered approach, it promotes exploration and discovery as learning methods. Key components include developmentally appropriate practices tailored to different stages, a rich and stimulating learning environment, and coverage of essential developmental domains such as social-emotional, physical, language, and cognitive skills. The curriculum balances teacher-guided and child-initiated learning, fosters strong family engagement, and integrates continuous assessment to plan individualized instruction, ensuring each child’s unique needs and potential are addressed. 

Teaching Strategies GOLD® Assessments

Assessments are crucial tools in ensuring students stay on track with their learning. They provide valuable insights into students’ understanding and mastery of the material, highlighting areas where they excel and identifying topics that may require additional support. Regular assessments help educators tailor instruction to meet each student’s needs, ensuring that no one falls behind. They also enable teachers to monitor progress over time, adjust teaching strategies, and provide targeted interventions when necessary. For students, assessments can foster self-awareness and motivation, as they receive feedback on their performance and can set goals for improvement. Overall, assessments create a structured framework for continuous learning and development, keeping students aligned with their educational goals.

GOLD® Assessment is an observation-based, ongoing assessment system designed to track the development and learning of children from birth through kindergarten. It assesses multiple developmental areas, including social-emotional, physical, language, cognitive, literacy, and mathematics, through regular observational data gathered during classroom activities. The system is structured around research-based developmental progressions, enabling teachers to identify where each child is on their developmental path and plan individualized instruction. Continuous assessment, with daily and weekly tracking, ensures real-time insights, early identification of needs, responsive teaching, and family involvement, capturing the whole child’s development and fostering a high-quality, individualized learning experience.
