This curriculum helps provide a structure for teachers to individualize instruction. Our teachers observe children to track their progress and to ensure they are provided with opportunities to reach developmental milestones. The Creative Curriculum also helps teachers make sure children are being exposed to all areas of development by encouraging the use of hands-on learning opportunities in the following areas: social/emotional, physical, language and cognitive. By using the same curriculum for all age groups in our program, information about a child can be passed along as a child transitions from an infant room all the way through the pre-school classrooms.
Our highly qualified teachers facilitate learning in our supportive, intellectually stimulating environment where children can explore and learn from different interest areas such as dramatic play, block center, science center, writing center and art. Teachers set up these learning centers based on children’s needs and interests. Each day we provide both structured and unstructured learning activities.
SACFC utilizes Conscience Discipline (CD) in our daily program. CD is trauma informed, evidence-based, and research-backed social emotional learning (SEL) with best practice strategies scientifically and practically designed for a child’s success. CD is a leader in brain-based social-emotional learning that builds resilience in children, families, educators, and schools. Our goal for implementing CD as part of our curriculum is to provide children, parents/guardians, and SACFC staff with the opportunity to learn skills and strategies that are both scientifically backed and practically applied in the classroom an in daily life.
