Curriculum

Once Upon A Time uses the Creative Curriculum®. The Creative Curriculum® celebrates the everyday discoveries that delight a child--the sound a rattle makes; the leaves blowing in circles by the wind; the ball that unexpectedly rolls across a child's path; the ants marching across the pavement. If the interactions children have are nurturing, consistent, and loving, and the experiences they have are appropriately challenging, then students flourish. In such an environment, children learn to trust and joyfully explore their surroundings, making discoveries and developing a sense of themselves as competent learners and caring human beings.

  • is based on 38 objectives for development and learning, which are fully aligned with the School Readiness Goals for Infants and Toddlers in Head Start and early learning standards for each state.

  • helps teachers and caregivers implement developmentally appropriate practices and offer responsive daily routines and meaningful experiences that nurture learning and development.

  • offers daily opportunities for teachers and caregivers to use assessment information to individualize routines and experiences for young children.

  • provides built-in guidance for building the kind of meaningful partnerships with families that are an essential factor in how infants, toddlers and twos experience your program and how much they gain from it.
