The Academy uses The Creative Curriculum, which is a nationally recognized and approved curriculum. This curriculum is strongly based on a foundation of research and theory and is one of four curriculum models approved by the State of South Carolina. It is also supported by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
Along with the Creative Curriculum, we will incorporate a customized. age appropriate curriculum that incorporates, but is not limited to: South Carolina’s Good Start, Grow Smart Early Learning Standards, Kindergarten Readiness, life-skills, leadership, organization, etiquette, healthy living, reading, social studies, mathematics, early writing, etc.
The Academy uses the Ages and Stages Development Tool (ASQ-3) twice a year to assess your child’s developmental stage. With this tool, we develop unique age appropriate goals to meet your child’s learning needs.
