The philosophy of The Creative Curriculum is that young children learn best by doing. The Creative Curriculum balances teacher‐planned and child‐initiated learning, emphasizing responsiveness to children's strengths, interests, needs, and learning styles. Nationally known for being forward‐thinking, comprehensive, and rigorously researched, it helps teachers plan and implement content‐rich, developmentally appropriate programs that support active learning and promote children's progress in all developmental areas.
