In our classrooms, we implement the Creative Curriculum by Teaching Strategies. We have two separate editions, Toddlers and Two’s and Preschool. In each edition, the children are exposed to a broad variety of topics and lessons each day. Both versions have a range of different ways to implement each activity for all levels of student performance. Each lesson is tailored directly to your child’s current levels and focuses on getting them to the next step!
Every few weeks, a new “study” is introduced in our Preschool curriculum. Each study exposes the children to a specific theme (roads, trees, clothes, etc.) Everyday, the children learn the basics (shapes, colors, numbers, letters) along with interesting information about each topic!
Grounded in 38 research-based objectives for development and learning, Teaching Strategies GOLD® supports effective teaching and assessment, while providing our teachers with more time to spend with the children in our program. Each day our teachers assess the students on different developmental objectives such as:
* Phonological Awareness
* Number Concepts and Operations
* Gross Motor and Fine Motor
* Establishing Positive Relationships with Peers and Regulating Emotions
* Language and Vocabulary
* Knowledge of Print
*...and so much more!
We use the information we gather from these assessments to plan our daily lessons, specifically written for the skills your child has guiding them to reaching the next level of their potential. Three times a year, we print out a detailed report to let you know how your child is progressing within our program and make a plan especially for them for the next checkpoint period.
