Preschool Curriculum

IMG_5796_899x599In keeping with our educational philosophy, Sandy Lane’s Preschool teachers use The Creative Curriculum by Diane Trister Dodge and Laura J. Colker as a framework when completing their lesson plans.

The Creative Curriculum offers teachers the guidance, support and freedom to be creative and responsive to children. Because children learn from their daily interactions with the environment, a carefully organized and rich environment is the foundation for this guide.

The Creative Curriculum focuses on interest areas such as blocks, dramatic play, manipulative toys, art, sand and water, library, music and movement, cooking, computers and outdoor play.
