For our spiritual and academic curriculum at Foothills Christian Preschool, we utilize “Creative Curriculum” interwoven with “Planted”.
The Creative Curriculum for Preschool is an award-winning research-based curriculum. It features exploration and discovery as a way of learning, enabling children to develop confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills. The Creative Curriculum for Preschool is based on 38 objectives for development and learning. These objectives are fully aligned with the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework and state early learning standards, and integrated into each and every one of the comprehensive collection of resources that makes up the curriculum. Parents can be confident that their child is meeting important early learning standards every day, even while teachers bring their own creativity and expertise into daily planning. What’s more, the curriculum also offers daily opportunities to individualize instruction by helping teachers meet the needs of every learner, with a particular focus on English language development.
Planted curriculum is rooted in biblical truth and combines systematic theology with the Bible’s grand narrative in a contextual and developmentally appropriate way. Planted aims to create a space where kids can experience who God is and who He made them to be.
