At All Things Are Possible For Kids, Inc., we utilize Teaching Strategies: The Creative Curriculum, a quality, developmentally appropriate program. The Creative Curriculum is an Eriksonian curriculum with influences that include Montessori, Dewey, Piaget, Vygotsky, Culkin, and McCord. The basic premise is that it is flexible; taking into account each child’s learning style, strengths, and areas that are challenges. Used to inform and shape, the The Creative Curriculum offers guidance to teachers. Its research base ensures that teachers know not only what and how to teach children, but why particular practices are effective.
The program is play-based. Teachers set the stage for learning, while children interact with and learn in eight interest areas: blocks, dramatic play, table toys, music, art, sand and water, library, and the outdoors. We monitor the curriculum through Director observation and feedback, and discussion of developmentally appropriate activities at group meetings. We believe there are many ways to teach, and that each child learns differently. Individual children are supported to learn in ways that suit them best.
