Rhymes & Reasons Creative Curriculum
Rhymes & Reasons Preschool uses The Creative Curriculum as a foundation for learning. The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children’s learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. The Creative Curriculum uses theme-based approaches to learning and is designed to capitalize on the natural learning experiences that occur in learning centers. Thematic units incorporate various subject areas into developmentally appropriate activities to help student growth in gross motor development, fine motor development, language and communication, and social and emotional development.
Creative Curriculum uses exploration and discovery as a way of learning and enables children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills. It addresses all the important areas of learning, from social-emotional and math to technology and the arts, and incorporates them throughout every part of the day.
The Creative Curriculum model also places a high importance on authentic, ongoing assessment of children. The Creative Curriculum comprehensive assessment tools are based on the latest research, are proven valid and reliable, and are fully aligned with the Common Core State Standards and state early learning guidelines.
Family partnerships are an essential part of the success of Rhymes & Reasons. When teachers and families work together, children’s development and learning is fully supported. The Creative Curriculum platform offers a wealth of family-focused resources that are completely devoted to helping our teachers build connections between a child’s two most important worlds: school and home.
