The Creative Curriculum

The  three Early Education Centers (EEC) follows the Creative Curriculum, a research-based program developed and published by Teaching Strategies. It is a balanced curriculum, designed to enable children to grow in physical, social-emotional, cognitive and language development.
Birth to age three is the most important period of development and a period in which children are very vulnerable. Initially, they are totally dependent on adults to meet their every need. When care and experiences are nurturing and consistent, children flourish.
There are five central components that make up the framework from which teachers will be working:

  • Partnering with families.

  • Knowledge of the development of infants, toddlers, and two- and three-year-olds.

  • Creating a responsive environment.

  • Learning needs of children.

  • Caring and teaching.

These five central components encompass a variety of routines and experiences. Routines provide opportunities for children to build positive and trusting relationships. The welcoming and departure routine, in conjunction with diapering, toileting, feeding, dressing and soothing children to sleep, helps children feel secure. Through these secure feelings, children begin to form secure attachments and gain independence. Routines are also used to help children make sense of their world, develop language and guide their curiosity.
For each of these areas of learning, the EEC provides children with support as they work to develop skills that are just beyond their current levels. As children acquire the necessary skills, less and less support is offered and children ultimately accomplish tasks independently.


The three  Early Education Centers  are accredited by the National Association of Education for Young Children (– NAEYC). Ensuring the quality of children’s experiences in early childhood programs and promoting positive child outcomes is at the heart of NAEYC accreditation standards and criteria.




Our curriculum is based on the premise that birth to age three is the most important period of development, when children begin to become competent learners.
