About This Class

Our certified teacher(s) implement the Creative Curriculum for Preschool. The Creative Curriculum for Preschool is comprehensive, research-based curriculum that features inquiry, exploration, and discovery as the foundation of all learning.  As a content-rich, developmentally appropriate curriculum, it delivers academic rigor alongside social-emotional learning and cognitive development. And, it brings meaningful interactions and learning to life in our  classroom.  Our goal is to instill a love of learning and best prepare our children as they grow to transition from this classroom into our Bill Martin Classroom.
