Children learn best by exploration and discovery. Exploration and discovery enable children to develop confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Through exploration of this research-based curriculum, we will learn to build and implement high-quality preschool classrooms and a high-quality preschool program.
The Foundation book provides the knowledge base of the curriculum and provides information about current research and best practices in the early childhood field. The Interest Area book describes the classroom environment and the 11 interest areas within the classroom environment. This book explains how the interest areas promote development and learning, how to set up each area, what children learn in each area and what the teacher’s role is when children are exploring each area.
