Every teacher at Temple Shalom Preschool is extensively trained to use The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool on an ongoing basis. The Creative Curriculum is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that features exploration and discovery as a way of learning, enabling children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills. It is designed to help educators at all levels of experience plan and implement a developmentally appropriate, content-rich program for children with diverse backgrounds and skill levels.
The Creative Curriculum features project-based investigations of topics that are relevant to children’s every day experiences by integrating content learning through children’s in-depth investigation of meaningful topics. Children propose questions about the topic, and through exploration and discovery, they find answers to their questions.
The Creative Curriculum encourages children to explore science and social studies topics while developing skills in language and literacy math, technology and the arts.
