Creative Curriculum Overview
The philosophy of the Creative Curriculum is that young children learn best by doing.
The goal of the Creative Curriculum is to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment and build meaningful positive relationships with people around them.
The curriculum identifies goals in all areas of children's development: Social/Emotional, Cognitive, Physical and Language and shows teachers how to integrate learning in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology throughout the day.
Our teachers all have the entire curriculum for their specific age ranges and classes and are trained by the developer of the curriculum through three day sessions per year, in addition to continuing education surrounding child growth and development.
At Global Pioneer Academy, our teachers build the curriculum for our children around the environment using the following twelve different learning areas:
• Dramatic Play
• Table Toys
• Sand & Water
• Writing Station
• Science Discovery
• Large Motor Area
Creative Curriculum VS. Montessori Methods
The Creative Curriculum is a comprehensive research based curriculum and it takes the best from the Montessori methods and then adds to them from other approaches based on the very best research in early childhood learning and development. In other words, we choose not to be limited to only one approach as in a Montessori school, but rather to take the best from what research shows is most effective in early childhood education.
