A four-month pilot study conducted in the fall of 2016, which included a diverse sample of elementary school teachers, brought play-based resources and high-quality, developmentally appropriate experiences from The Creative Curriculum® for Kindergarten into kindergarten classrooms across the country.
A total of 32 schools and 70 kindergarten teachers from Alabama, Alaska, New York, and Washington State participated as trial classrooms for the 2016-2017 academic year.
