The Creative Curriculum is a forward-thinking, comprehensive, research-based and research-proven curriculum that helps teachers to be their most effective, while still honoring their creativity and respecting their critical role in making learning exciting and relevant for every child. In addition to valuing the individual development of children, the Center encourages growth of those who parent and care for children. Center staff are required to continue learning about different facets of their profession. Students from nearby universities are involved in the program, both observing and student teaching.

Education Through Experience

Infants begin a lifelong process in which their natural curiosity and experimentation produce learning. Children are guided in making sense of their world. As their natural wills are nourished and nurtured, a self-actualized, independent being develops capable of living harmoniously within the world. The learning is developmental in nature; that is, knowledge is based on previous learning and continues to expand and grow with the child. The teacher is the nurturer and facilitator within the child care center. This person prepares the environment to challenge and stimulate the child at their own level of development.
