The Creative Curriculum is taught in all classrooms. The Creative Curriculum implements a comprehensive approach to teaching young learners based on the vital role of “play” in children’s learning. The classrooms are organized into interest areas and our teachers use a variety of approaches and take an active role in children’s learning. Academic content is integrated into everyday experiences.
We also follow the guidelines of Foundations which is the Early Learning Standards for NC Preschoolers and Strategies for Guiding Their Success.
