Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum “The Creative Curriculum®”

How it works

The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is a comprehensive collection of knowledge-building and daily practice resources that explains the “what,” “why,” and “how” of teaching.

Nationally known for its forward-thinking, rigorously researched model, The Creative Curriculum® has been trusted for decades by early childhood educators in classrooms across the country. It focuses on meeting the needs of individual children, while honoring and respecting the role that teachers play in making learning engaging and meaningful for every child.

The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool provides teachers with the content and tools needed to encourage and support every type of learner and address all the important areas of learning.


The Creative Curriculum for Preschool is based on 38 objectives for development and learning. These objectives are fully aligned with the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework and state early learning standards, and integrated into each and every one of the comprehensive collection of resources that makes up the curriculum.

How curriculum and assessment are linked

Covering all important areas of children’s development and learning—social–emotional, physical, language, cognitive, literacy, math, science and technology, social studies, and the arts, as well as English-language acquisition— The Creative Curriculum’s objectives include predictors of school success and are based on school readiness standards. So throughout the early childhood learning experience, children are being prepared in all the ways that matter for later success in school.
