Your Child’s Education

Curriculum

The Creative Curriculum® builds children’s confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills through hands-on, project-based investigations. Trusted for decades by early childhood educators, the curriculum:

  • Respects and nurtures individual skill progression for the whole child,
  • Harnesses the power of play through studies that engage learners 
  • Seamlessly connects families to their children’s learning learning, and
  • Provides intentional support for every teacher every day.

Assessment Tool

Teaching Strategies GOLD® is an authentic observation-based assessment system for children from birth through kindergarten. It blends ongoing observational assessment for all areas of development and learning with performance tasks for selected predictors of school success in the areas of literacy and numeracy. Teaching Strategies GOLD® can be used to assess all children, including English-language learners, children with disabilities, and children who demonstrate competencies beyond typical developmental expectations.

Screening Tool

The BRIGANCE® Early Childhood Screen III is a collection of quick, highly accurate assessments and data-gathering tools to use with children. The early years are a time of rapid growth and learning, and screening can provide an important understanding of the child’s development at a particular point in time. Screening can serve as the first step in assessing a child’s school readiness, providing a snapshot of a child’s mastery of early developmental and academic skills. Screening also enables educators to readily identify children who may be developmentally delayed or advanced and, therefore, can support any intervention that might be needed.
