Creative Curriculum

We believe each child learns best based on own interests. Lesson plans are based on the Creative Curriculum and also for each child’s needs; spiritually, developmentally, emotionally and socially.

Our staff works with families to develop a curriculum that emerges from the children’s interests. Studies for exploration emerge from the conversations of and with children, through community and family events, and through knowledge of individual children’s particular interests. Teachers and parents work as a team to formulate “threads” of learning to guide the direction of the children’s projects. These threads transform into studies in which the topic is immersed into all developmental learning areas. By allowing the child to explore many different learning centers we create the best opportunity for knowledge to grow.

We strive to incorporate Christian values and beliefs into each lesson and infuse these teachings into our everyday routines. The biblical values are intertwined with everyday learning so that children can see how Jesus’ teachings are important in everything we do.

The Infant & Toddler Program is based upon the care giving relationship and routines. Infants and toddlers are learning who they are and what they are capable of in each the small moments spent with nurturing adults. Creative Curriculum helps teachers achieve the very best program for children under three. Teachers plan experiences that are appropriately challenging and supporting growth and development as infants, ones and twos learn about themselves and others, learn about moving, learn about their world and learn about communicating.
