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 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.
The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is one of the most widely used pre-K curricula in the nation. It’s comprehensive, research-based, research-proven, and it 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…
Why Whole Child?
At Teaching Strategies, we know a whole-child approach to learning is the most developmentally appropriate way to educate children. Why? Because a whole-child approach fosters all areas of children’s development and learning – from social-emotional and cognitive skills to literacy, math, and science understanding – and is a powerful approach as preschool children transition to kindergarten.
With The Creative Curriculum®, children are immersed in learning through purposeful play-based experiences on topics they’re familiar with from their everyday lives. Children find opportunities for rigorous skill development like counting, measurement, and language comprehension while also developing positive relationships, gross-motor skills, and problem solving abilities.
And research tells us it’s working. Our latest efficacy study details how The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is helping programs significantly increase CLASS scores and children meet or exceed widely held expectations.
