The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool

As you prepare children for success in school and life, it’s more important than ever to educate the whole child.

 

Research shows that a whole-child approach to education—one where children have opportunities to develop not only math and literacy skills but also social–emotional, physical, and cognitive skills—is developmentally appropriate and better prepares children for life well beyond their time in a classroom.

Approach

The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is one of the most widely used pre-K curricula in the nation. It’s comprehensive and research-based and features exploration and discovery as a way of learning.

Foundation volumes help teachers create high-quality learning environments and support deep understanding of early childhood best practices, theories, and research. Robust Daily Resources provide the instructional tools and materials to engage children in project-based investigations and make every moment of the day meaningful, intentional, and engaging.

The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is…

Proven to increase kindergarten readiness

Academically rigorous and promotes social–emotional development

Rated higher than any other preschool curriculum

Inclusive, supporting all children

Aligned to all state early learning guidelines and the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes
