AllCare’s instructional programming follows a developmentally appropriate framework that incorporates The Creative Curriculum for Preschool. We address the NYS Learning Standards by implementing an integrated curriculum incorporating the five domains (cognitive, language, motor, self help/adaptive, and social/emotional) that provides numerous opportunities for learning through active exploration and experimenting with materials. Children engage in personally meaningful activities (based on their ages, interests and needs) and collaborate with peers and adults during large and small group time in the classroom. Knowledge, skills and concepts addressed include literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts (drama, fine art, music, movement) and technology with ample time for physical activity. Teachers’ roles are to observe children, guide learning, and assess progress (via standardized and informal tools). The Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale and/or DEC Recommended Practices Program Assessment are used to make sure that the classroom environment and program structure are optimal.
