The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children's learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. This is one of the country's leading research-based early childhood curricula as it applies the latest theory and research on best practices in teaching and learning and the content standards developed by states and professional organizations. The original environmentally-based approach of The Creative Curriculum for Toddlers and Preschool clearly defines the teacher's vital role in connecting content, teaching, and learning for young children. It features goals and objectives linked directly to our valid and reliable assessment instrument. The Creative Curriculum promotes children's social-emotional development and learning in the core areas of literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies. It combines the latest research and the freshest ideas into a forward-thinking approach to learning, one that honors creativity and respects the role that teachers play in making learning exciting and relevant for every child in their classroom.The most important goal of our early childhood curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try our their ideas and to think their own thoughts. Our goal is to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners.
