Come and meet us at IDEA Early Learning Center. We are committed to the progress of each individual child and we have selected the Creative Curriculum to ensure that every child develops a love of language through creative play.
The creative curriculum for Preschool and Kindergarten is an award-winning curriculum based on 38 objectives for development and learning for preschool success. The curriculum is fully aligned with the United States Federal Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework as well as Common Core State Standards. The Creative Curriculum for Preschool enables children to develop confidence, creativity and lifelong critical thinking skills.
An appropriate curriculum for infants and toddlers focuses on what is most essential for their healthy growth and development – namely building responsive relationships between teachers, children, families and the community. The Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers and Twos has enabled early childhood practitioners to apply developmentally appropriate, content-rich practice and create daily routines and meaningful experiences that respond to children’s strengths, interests and needs regardless of family background or skill levels. With the Creative Curriculum, throughout the early childhood learning experience children are being prepared in all the ways that matter for later success in school.
IDEA Early Learning Center offers the Creative Curriculum from 9 months all the way through Kindergarten. The Creative Curriculum is based on 75 years of childhood studies and involves research-based developmentally appropriate practice which according to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) “provides children with the opportunities to learn and practice newly acquired skills. It offers challenges just beyond the level of their present mastery and it takes place in the context of a community where children are safe and valued, where their physical needs are met, and where they feel psychologically secure.” (Bredekamp & Copple, 1997). Developed in the United States, at the heart of the Creative Curriculum is deep knowledge of child development theory and careful consideration of the latest research in the field of early childhood education to benefit early learners.

At IDEA, we aim to create a sense of community, a home away from home so your child feels safe and valued where their physical needs are met, and where they feel psychologically secure. Building relationships is one of the most important things we do. This is not only with the children, but with parents and careers alike.
At IDEA, we employ specialist early years staff who are experts in early childhood education. Our teaching practices are inquiry based and focussed on literacy through creative play.
