The Creative Curriculum® establishes a basis for excellence in literacy, mathematics, science and social studies through the expert approach of inquiry and hands on learning. This curriculum encourages a love of learning, instills critical thinking, curiosity and creativity while also providing a holistic education that focuses on the development of social skills.
This US based pre-school curriculum was designed from the features of curriculum effectiveness published by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the National Association of Early Childhood Specialists in the US Department of Education.
The curriculum utilizes learning approaches that focus on inquiry and project based learning. The program ensures a smooth transition for students into the next phases of their learning.
Based on 38 objectives for development and learning, the curriculum includes progressions that identify widely held expectations for children of particular ages or grades. When children enter kindergarten, their learning has already been focused on the skills that are essential for success in the Common Core Standards.
At Dunecrest American School in Dubai, our Early Years Program follows the Creative Curriculum® as well as AERO Common Core Plus Curricular Standards for Science and Math.
