Diversifying a Child's Developmental Needs

Intentional, purposeful, and fun learning centers to engage each child

We believe children from birth to preschool learn best with hands-on projects of interest. Our earliest learners have a different curriculum than preschool programs to diversify their developmental needs. For instance, infant and toddlers learn best through sensory exploration whereas our preschool programs learn language development through listening and linguistics.

 

All programs offered at Creative emphasize on science, technology, engineering, arts, and music, and include several learning centers to enhance STEAM in the classroom for child-directed play. Our learning centers extend the content discussed in Large Group Meeting time each day based on weekly activities and themes of each program.

Learning Centers include:

Math/Manipulatives

Early Learning Standards indicate this subject area is where children are the furthest behind when they go to Kindergarten. Click here to find out more.

Dramatic Play

We believe in diversity and teaching the future to be kind and respectful. Although we all may look different, we are all the same on the inside. This is instilled in our teaching practices. We encourage different cultures and languages and celebrate different holidays and throughout the year to promote diversity and an open-mind about experiences other families and friends might share. 

While each child is different, we focus on the developmental domains of early childhood education. As your child grows and develops from birth to five years old, we find it equally important to focus on the educational aspect just as much as physical development. 

Our Infant through Early Learning Programs use the Creative Curriculum. Our Transitional Program uses Houghton-Mifflin's Big Day for PreK, and our Kindergarten Readiness program uses Children Study Their World (a curriculum from University of Maryland Center for Early Childhood Education).
