The nationally recognized, research-based Creative Curriculum is used in all child care programs in the Consortium. Developmentally-appropriate versions of the curriculum are used for infant and toddler, preschool, and school age care. The Creative Curriculum was developed by Diane Trister Dodge and colleagues and is published by Teaching Strategies.
The Creative Curriculum presents an environmentally based approach to planning and implementing developmentally appropriate practice in early childhood settings. It is an effective way to help children gain the self-help and social competency skills they need for lifelong learning.
