At Little Scholars Child Development Center, Inc. we pride our-self in teaching to ensure your child meets all developmental milestones.. The curriculum we teach is The Creative Curriculum for Infant, Toddlers, Two's and Preschool. We believe that appropriate early experiences provide the base for knowing and understanding their world, and these experiences shape early development. The Creative Curriculum: Infant, Toddlers and Twos program provides guidelines and activities that reflect a philosophy of inclusion for all infants, while emphasizing that they should participate in these activities according to their own individual schedules. It also ensures that objects, movement, and experiences are included that positively affect all areas of development: cognitive, language, social-emotional, and motor.
Based on the latest research about how children learn and develop, The Creative Curriculum for Preschool is designed with activities that connect literacy, math, science, social studies, and creative arts. It is organized and follows a brain-based approach to learning that encourages exploration and discovery. Each unit contains the following elements: goals and objectives, strategies for meeting the needs of dual language learners, adaptations for children with special needs, suggestions for extending the learning, tips for developing social– emotional skills, and ideas for connecting with families. The Creative Curriculum was intended to provide children with multiple opportunities: to make generalizations about the information they have acquired through exploration and creative problem solving, to participate in high-interest activities that offer multiple ways to learn through a variety of modalities, and to incorporate new problem-solving strategies into their existing knowledge bases. It focuses on multi-sensory instruction by offering a variety of sensory experiences to facilitate learning. By designing an environment with sights and smells; language and auditory rhythm; and opportunities for gross and fine motor movement, touch, and manipulation, children experience the wonder of learning!
The assessment model used in GOLD follows widely held expectations for children from birth through third grade and enables a whole-child approach to assessment. Color-coded progressions guide teachers toward selecting and adapting activities that support each child’s development and learning. Meaningful reports inform classroom practices and individualized instruction. Automatically connecting assessment data and observation capabilities with daily instructional resources, creating an instantaneous and ongoing feedback loop of information to individualize learning and empower teachers to capture observations in the moment.
