The Creative Curriculum

The Growing Place follows The Creative Curriculum, a program developed by Teaching Strategies, Inc. and meets all of the standards put forth for effective early childhood curricula by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the National Association of Early Childhood Specialists in State Departments of Education (NAECS/SDE).

At The Growing Place, classrooms are organized in learning centers intended to foster early childhood development and the intimate class size allows premium, one on one, quality time with the staff.

Teachers set the stage for explorative–type learning through the selection of developmentally appropriate materials and equipment. By using guided observation skills, teachers are able to understand and to respond to each child’s needs regarding cognitive, emotional and physical development.

The use of open-ended questions and projects are intended to encourage the child’s examination of his/her work and to identify new possibilities and ideas to extend play.
