It’s official! Our staff has officially adopted “Creative Curriculum” as our school’s curriculum. Creative Curriculum is a play-based learning curriculum that encourages student exploration and independence through center based classrooms. One of the reasons we chose this curriculum was because most of the teachers have been using elements of the curriculum for years with great success. Child directed learning is balanced with teacher initiated activities that enhance development in the following areas: social emotional, cognitive, physical and language development. Additionally, teachers scaffold experiences to promote learning literacy, match, science, technology, social studies, the arts and music. Creative Curriculum also helps teachers assess student development with a strength-based assessment program utilizing their own developmental goals and objectives which support and align with the Tennessee Early Learning and Developmental Standards.
