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.
Using a NAEYC accredited curriculum means that our curriculum draws on research about child development, and uses effective 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 siezing teachable moments that offer children opportunities to learn both individually and in groups according to their unique developmental needs, interests, and natural curiosity.

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 which is best for dual-language learners.

We also teach children a global perspective by introducing a new country or region of the world each month. The cultures we study are authentically shared by members of our staff and volunteers who represent those cultures with their own heritage. Authentic cultural learning from true respresentatives of those cultures makes us intercultural!
