Early Childhood Curriculum

Program Philosophy and Goals

Our program recognizes that children learn best by doing. The program offers the teacher a wide range of coordinated activities from which to select developmentally appropriate activities for their own group of children. There are many suggestions for activities which provide unlimited opportunities for the children to use their own creativity, as well as a variety of structured activities. The activities are designed to help your child grow emotionally, socially, intellectually, and physically, and to build a strong sense of their own individuality and self-esteem.

What Our Curriculum Is

Our preschool curriculum – Creative Curriculum – is a fun and educational activities program that is designed for use in our child care center. Its purpose is to give our busy child care staff the materials they need to provide a full, developmentally appropriate program of activities for the 2 to 5 year olds in our care. It also provides numerous activities for our school-age children during off days. We also use Kimochi for social-emotional learning in our older age groups.

Contact one of our centers to find out more.

We recognize that our staff needs to be able to devote their full attention to their day to day interactions with the children. Our professionally prepared curriculum materials help make this happen. Our monthly curriculum kits come complete with plans and materials for a wide range of activities.

How Parents Are Involved

You’ll receive a parent letter at the beginning of each month, to inform you of the suggested activities for that month. You’ll also receive notes periodically during the month. These will tell you about activities which may be planned, such as a color day when the children will need to wear clothing of a specific color, or bring something of that color. Your child’s teacher will not always include everything that is suggested in her program. She will have many choices of activities from which to build her program, and will need to consider the developmental level and interests and needs of the children in her class, and her own time constraints.

From time to time you may be asked to contribute various materials, such as gelatin boxes, milk cartons, egg cartons, etc.

How You Can Help

Be aware that child care providers need to be flexible and that plans may need to be changed at a moment’s notice. Child care, as you know, is not an exact science. Our administration and teachers are, and need to be, aware of your child’s needs. Our curriculum allows US the flexibility to provide the warm nurturing care you want for your child while providing a developmentally appropriate program that is fun as well as educational.

What Your Child Will Be Doing

Children learn best through a variety of hands-on experiences and activities. Our curriculum includes activities that focus on the whole child – cognitive, physical, language, social-emotional, and creativity. We use developmentally appropriate childcare practices to support your child’s growth in all areas. Check out one of our daycare centers for a sample of our curriculum in action.

  • Cognitive Development: Your child will be introduced to basic concepts such as colors, shapes, numbers, and letters through fun and engaging activities. They will also learn through games, puzzles, and hands-on exploration.
  • Physical Development: Your child will have plenty of opportunities to move their bodies through outdoor play, gross motor activities such as dancing or obstacle courses, and fine motor activities like using scissors or drawing.
  • Language Development: Our daycare curriculum includes activities that encourage children to express themselves through language, whether it’s through talking, singing, or storytelling.
  • Social-Emotional Development: We recognize the importance of social-emotional development in young children and our curriculum includes activities to help them develop strong self-esteem, empathy, and appropriate social skills.
  • Creativity: Your child will have opportunities to explore their own creativity through art, music, and dramatic play activities.


At ABC Great Beginnings, we believe that every child is unique and deserves an individualized approach to learning. That’s why our curriculum allows for flexibility in planning and implementing activities based on the specific needs of each child. We also incorporate multicultural materials and experiences into our curriculum, providing a diverse and inclusive learning environment for all children.

Our curriculum is also constantly evolving to stay current with the latest research and best practices in early childhood education. We regularly review and update our materials to ensure that we are providing the highest quality care and education for your child.
