The Creative Curriculum, utilized in the NFC Early Learning Center, is a comprehensive, research based early childhood curriculum that has been shown to improve cognitive and social/emotional outcomes in young children. The Creative Curriculum provides teachers guidance in the following areas: how children develop and learn, the learning environment, what children learn, the teacher’s role and the family’s role. The goals set forth in the curriculum, which is specifically designed for each age level from infancy-preschooler, address all aspects of development including:

  • Social/Emotional Development: children’s feelings about themselves, the development of responsibility, and their ability to relate positively to others.
  • Physical Development: children’s gross and fine motor development.
  • Cognitive Development: children’s thinking skills-the development of logical and symbolic thinking, problem-solving skills and approaches to learning.
  • Language Development: children’s ability to communicate through words, both spoken and written.

We encourage parents to be as involved as possible with their child’s development in the classroom. Opportunities include parent/teacher conferences, attending special events &/or field trips, attending family engagement nights, sharing ideas with staff, or just sticking around to play a game with your child in his classroom! Individuals or groups that have an interesting hobby, cultural type of activity or occupation to share with the children are always appreciated.
