Creative Curriculum in the Little Pirates Classroom

Little Pirates Learning Center implements The Creative Curriculum. Through studies and research, the curriculum is designed to help children grow and learn in cognitive , social/ emotional, physical, and language development. The studies have shown that children learn best through guided play. The teacher's role in the classroom is to play with the children and implement meaningful lessons that will help children grow in these areas of development.

The classroom is divided into different learning centers where children can explore and become engaged in their learning environment. Little Pirates Learning Center has divided their classroom into the following centers:

  1. Block Center
  2. Science Center
  3. Math Center
  4. Dramatic Play
  5. Library
  6. Sensory Table
  7. Art Center
  8. Manipulatives and Games
  9. Outdoor Play
  10. Music & Movement
  11. Writing Center
  12. Literacy Center

Throughout the day, the children are encouraged to participate in learning centers, large group, and small group activities. The goal of The Creative Curriculum classroom is to help the children become confident in themselves and encourage them to play an active role in their individual learning. Learning within the classroom is carried over into the home. The Creative Curriculum recognizes that parents are one of the most active teachers in their child's life. With teacher and parent cooperation, a child's learning environment can only be enriched at school and home. Through careful observations and documentation during the school day, the teachers at Little Pirates Learning Center work as a team to develop evaluations in the areas of development so lessons and activities are developmentally appropriate for your child. With the help from parents, we strive to offer your child the best learning environment possible.
