Creative Curriculum

Gun Lake Early Childhood Center uses The Creative Curriculum. The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool, Sixth Edition is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum. At the heart of The Creative Curriculum is knowledge of child development theory and careful consideration of the latest research in the field of early childhood education. Used to inform and shape The Creative Curriculum and the guidance offered to teachers, the research base ensures that teachers know not only what and how to teach children but why particular practices are effective. By understanding the theory and research behind how children’s knowledge, skills, and behaviors progress over time, teachers are better able to support children’s development and learning. The Creative Curriculum highlights the important balance between applying a general knowledge of child development with the particular knowledge a teacher gains by forming a relationship with each child and family.
