Our Head Start programs provide all enrolled children with a well-designed curriculum (Creative Curriculum) that allows the teacher to know and develop a positive relationship with each child. Teachers follow a consistent schedule, carry through on announced plans and promises, set up an environment where children can find and return materials on their own.
Classroom staff provide appropriate play materials that support and challenge children’s abilities, help children express their feelings in constructive ways. They provide appropriate real-world responsibilities and jobs, encourage children to see tasks through to completion and offer children opportunities to make choices. Teachers provide children with ample opportunities for creative expression, allow children freedom to explore the environment, encourage children to work independently. They value children’s ideas and promote problem solving and appropriate risk taking.
