The Loop Learning Center uses the Creative Curriculum with all students. The Creative Curriculum is a research based, comprehensive, nurturing, predictable, consistent, flexible and developmentally appropriate curriculum that includes objectives for development and learning in all domains.
The Creative Curriculum framework consists of 5 components:
- how children develop and learn
- the learning environment
- what children learn
- caring and teaching
- partnering with families
The Creative Curriculum contains 36 goals and objectives in the following domains: Social-Emotional, Physical, Cognitive, Language, Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies and The Arts. There are 2 additional objectives that cover English Language Acquisition for English Language Learners. The goals and objectives consist of progressions which address children from infancy through Kindergarten.
This curriculum offers choices and flexibility. It allows the teachers to be intentional about the experiences that are offered to the children while considering the interest and abilities of the children being served.
