CHILD CARE CENTERS
Our centers strive to provide your child with the very best in education and care.
The Delaware Child Development Program adopted Creative Curriculum® for use in all of the child care centers. Creative Curriculum® focuses on setting up the environment and learning activities for children to explore and create, enhancing development in their social and emotional skills, fine and gross motor activity, cognitive development, and language/pre-literacy functions. The curriculum materials offer opportunities for teachers to provide learning experiences for children based on their developmental age and needs.
All staff members receive extensive training on the implementation of the curriculum. Benchmarks of children’s growth and development are a part of the electronic assessment database that allows teachers to individualize lesson plans that nurture each child’s emerging skills.
The curriculum supports the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s criteria for curriculum, which recognizes the need to implement a curriculum that is sensitive to developmental capabilities and backgrounds of children, addresses all areas of child development, and supports the idea that children are active participants in the learning process. These ideals support positive, long-term success in academic settings – a vision that the Delaware Child Development Program holds for all children.
