The 10 indoor interest areas plus the outdoor space offer multiple opportunities for children to explore, discover, and learn. Interest areas provide a setting for children to learn academic content and apply skills.


Materials in each area are carefully selected to reflect children's interests and developmental levels. We consider it especially important to have plenty of real items that reflect children's lives, for example cooking tools, small appliances that no longer work, dress up clothes and other tools from children's homes and yards. These items reflect children's home culture and allow children to imitate adults.

The physical space of the Creative Curriculum classroom is organized into interest areas:


  • Blocks
  • House and Dramatic Play
  • Toys and Games
  • Art
  • Language and Writing
  • Math and Discovery
  • Sand and Water
  • Music and Movement
  • Cozy Area

The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children's learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. The curriculum translates new research and theory from the field of early childhood education into a practical, easy-to-understand approach to working with children and their families. It is a comprehensive curriculum with a clear organizational structure and a particular focus on interest areas.

WHAT IS THE CREATIVE CURRICULUM?

Our Center implements the Creative Curriculum where activities are geared to the child's chronological age, while allowing adaptations for individual variations in interest, development, and experience. The lessons are developed to allow children to engage in activities and interactions of their own preference while providing adult support when scaffolding as needed individually or as a group. 

The Creative Curriculum enhances social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development.
