PCA’s preschool program uses Teaching Strategies’ The Creative Curriculum – a comprehensive curriculum that provides young students with opportunities to learn through investigation, discovery, and play.
The curriculum provides a research-based, approach to project-based learning in the classroom. Through project-based investigations of science and social studies topics that integrate literacy and math concepts into everyday instruction, teachers encourage all students to think critically, solve problems, and connect ideas. The curriculum also allows for the development of the whole student – not just in literacy and math, but in the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical skills that are equally important to the student’s success in school and life.
In addition, auxiliary art, music, and Spanish classes enrich the learning experience along with physical education classes and recesses that serve to develop physical agility and strength of each child.
