Creative education is when students are able to use imagination and critical thinking to create new and meaningful forms of ideas where they can take risks, be independent and flexible.
Instead of being taught to reiterate what was learned, students learn to develop their ability to find various solutions to a problem.
Our goal is to prepare children for advancement to the next educational level through a prescribed course of study or curriculum. We are not a daycare, we provide exceptional learning experiences for children ages 3 – 8 years old.
Examples of transformative use of technology include:
The right mix of creativity along with curriculum helps students to be innovative and also encourages them to learn new things. In fact, creative expression plays a key role in a student’s emotional development.
To support school readiness, the curriculum is aligned across pre-k through second grade so that the skills taught at the beginning of each school year naturally build upon the skills learned by students at the end of the previous year.
An advantage of our staff writing the curriculum rather than purchasing curricula is that it can be revised as frequently as deemed necessary. After a year or two of a curriculum, we go back and revise it based on teacher feedback and our coaches’ logs.
For our English Language Learners, strategies such as including visual supports, using multicultural and multilingual read-aloud books, making explicit vocabulary instruction part of play, and using concrete materials to facilitate dialogue are all built into the curriculum as well as the professional development teachers receive throughout the year.
