The Creative Curriculum meets all children! It is rich in play, hands on experiences, and so engaging. It allows all children an entry point into learning that supports each individual child. I can see their unique learning journey and get insight into how to support them based on a progression from birth thru age 8.

My experience with Creative Curriculum just began last year with my Transitional Kindergarten class. Setting up for daily lessons is easy and doesn’t require a lot of preparation which is a relief and completely different from past curriculums I’ve had to use.

Transitional kindergarteners learn by experiences, by touching, by asking questions—there isn’t ‘just a sit down in your chair and listen’ approach. When I was with OUSD, we picked the most developmentally appropriate curriculum, the curriculum that allowed children to see themselves in its pages, that honored their cultural and linguistic background, and we selected The Creative Curriculum.
