Creative Curriculum

Creative Curriculum

Milton Elementary Preschool has adopted its first curriculum. An overview of this can be viewed below. Teachers will undergo training over the summer to learn more about assessment and the curriculum. We look forward to inviting families to learn more about Creative Curriculum in the fall. 

What is the Creative Curriculum?

The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool, Guided Edition is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that features inquiry, exploration, and discovery as the foundation of all learning.
 
As a content-rich, developmentally appropriate curriculum, it delivers academic rigor alongside social-emotional learning and cognitive development. And, it brings meaningful interactions and learning to live in your classroom regardless of configuration – traditional, remote, or a hybrid version.

The Objectives for Development & Learning

Heart
Every element in the Teaching Strategies ecosystem connects to research-based objectives for development and learning, enabling a truly individualized path to success for each child.
 
 
 
 

Achieving Alignment with Education Quality Standards

 
"Coordinated Curriculum is one core feature of the State Board of Education’s Rule Series 2000 - Education Quality Standards (EQS), which were established to ensure all public school children will be afforded educational opportunities which are substantially equal in quality.”

Why Creative Curriculum?

The decision to implement the Creative Curriculum at preschool will allow us to achieve the following outcomes:
  • ensure alignment to the Vermont Early Learning Standards
  • calibrated use of formative and summative assessments
  • equitable access to rigorous and engaging learning opportunities
  • clear learning targets across all classrooms
  • focus on building social and emotional learning competencies
  • alignment of our pre-k-12 curriculum
