The Casa Creative Curriculum
The Casa Creative Curriculum is the NAEYC approved, research-based Teaching Strategies Creative Curriculum infused with Casa’s unique teaching objectives of Spanish immersion, cultural learning, and social responsibility.
NAEYC Accredited Curriculum
Using a NAEYC accredited curriculum means that our curriculum draws on research about child development, and uses methods for fostering children’s learning through the effective use of time, play materials, self-initiated learning, and creative expression. An accredited curriculum also ensures that teachers are intentional in planning activities and in seizing teachable moments that offer children opportunities to learn both individually and in groups according to their unique developmental needs, interests, and natural curiosity.
Additionally, every Spring we celebrate NAEYC‘s Week of the Young Child! This is a fun-filled week celebrating early learning, young children, teachers, families, and communities. We engage in different activities in our classrooms related to a special theme each day.
Monthly Themes & Strategies
The Casa Creative Curriculum uses monthly themes that are accessible and interesting to children, as well as daily teachable moments to meet the Teaching Strategies® 38 Objectives for development and learning.
Curiosity thrives as children explore their immediate environment as well as the world beyond their classrooms. At Casa de Corazón, we incorporate Spanish into every activity throughout the day creating an authentic immersion environment that is best for dual-language learners.
Our intercultural curriculum provides a unique learning experience for children. It addresses different areas of learning, promoting fine motor skills, artistic creativity and imagination, cognitive development, and teamwork. This curriculum better prepares our preschool children for kindergarten readiness.
Hispanic culture and traditions are infused into each lesson with representations of their respective culture’s musical expressions, gastronomic traditions, and social characteristics. For example, when we study El Salvador as our country of the month, our children learn how to make pupusas (a traditional Salvadoran dish) directly from a teacher who calls this country home. These intercultural presentations provide children with a chance to reflect on the diversity of the Hispanic cultures and learn authentic traditions from our teachers.
