Curriculum Overview

Creative Curriculum: Infant through Four (4) Years

  • Provides a comprehensive framework that emphasizes that relationships between caregivers/teachers and children and their families form the basis of curriculum for very young children.
  • Describes and demonstrates how to plan a developmentally appropriate program focusing on ten well-organized interest areas. Its underlying philosophy draws from Jean Piaget’s work on cognitive development, Erik Erikson’s stages of socio-emotional development, and accepted theories of how children learn best. The approach is practical, easy-to-understand, and immediately applicable to a variety of settings. 

**All infant, toddler and preschool classes are using the Creative Curriculum which will be aligned with the Ohio Early Learning Content Standards.

**The school-age program uses Cincy After School.
