The Curriculum

OFFERING The Creative Curriculum®

Little Scholars Child Development Center uses The Creative Curriculum® as the foundation for creating the best programs for children.  This research-based, age-appropriate approach is challenging, engaging, culturally and linguistically responsive and promotes positive outcomes for children.

The curriculum empowers teachers to understand not only the what and how to teach, but why particular practices are effective. Knowing the theory behind child development helps teachers adapt to each child’s learning strengths.

The Creative Curriculum® has five fundamental principles that guide preschool program:

  1. Positive interactions and relationships with adults provide a critical foundation for successful learning

  2. Social-emotional competence is a significant factor in school success

  3. Constructive, purposeful play supports essential learning

  4. The physical environment affects the type and quality of learning interactions

  5. Teacher/family partnerships promote development and learning


The result of these fundamental principles is a comprehensive curriculum with a clear organizational structure and a particular focus on routines and learning experiences. Developmentally appropriate challenges foster joyful and purposeful learning while they address specific needs.
