Curricular Philosophy

  • Learning is a social endeavor, an exchange of ideas which results in deeper conceptual understanding.
  • Foundational skills and achievable challenges create the stepping stones to future learning.
  • Learning strategies must be developmentally appropriate, individualized, and personally meaningful.
  • A positive and secure environment opens the door to active exploration which is essential to foundational learning.

Curricula Implemented

ECDC has chosen to utilize The Creative Curriculum, a nationally-recognized curricula which present balance, diverse teaching methods and strategies, family involvement, and foundational skills.  Teachers use components of  the curricula to provide experiences promoting physical well-being and motor development, social/emotional development, motivation to learn, language acquisition, cognition, and general knowledge.

ECDC is endorsed as an Eco-Healthy Child Care. We are also recognized as meeting “Let’s Move! Child Care” standards, a program established by First Lady Michelle Obama for developing healthy habits in our children.

Each classroom individualizes the curricula to best meet the needs of their present group of children.
