In supporting our main goal of student preparedness for kindergarten, we offer a quality early childhood experience that focuses on a standards-based curriculum in all developmental areas. Our district utilizes the State approved Creative Curriculum, an emergent curriculum that creates an environment which supports learning through play and discovery in a variety of interest centers. It also guides the teaching staff in offering small and large group activities intentionally planned to promote each student’s development and learning to meet all State Academic Standards. Student progress is observed and documented through the Teaching Strategies GOLD Assessment system in all developmental and content areas.
