Preschool Curriculum and Activities

CURRICULUM AND ASSESSMENT A preschooler makes a very excited face while looking at butterflies flying out of their cage.

  • Creative Curriculum - Aligned with Ohio Early Learning and Development standards, Creative Curriculum is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that features hands-on, project-based investigations as a pathway to learning. 
  • Handwriting without Tears - Curriculum supports fine motor development and includes multisensory components critical for engaging visual, audio and kinesthetic learners.
  • My Big World – Curriculum addresses current events in the community through social study and science related experiences.
  • Active Learning - Curriculum includes a philosophy and learning approach used with children who have multiple physical and intellectual conditions.

We recognize each child develops at their own individual pace. To provide feedback and promote development, children are assessed in a variety of ways:

  • IEP Progress Report
  • Early Learning Assessment (ELA)
  • GOLD Assessment
