We at Lil’ People’s World strive to make an on-going effort to value children as individuals and embrace their unique contributions to set the success in school and in life.

Program & Curriculum

At Lil’ People’s World we use a Teaching Strategy called “Creative Curriculum”. This strategy believes that children learn best when they are actively involved with materials and with others. “Creative Curriculum” is Nationally known for its forward-thinking, comprehensive and rigorously researched model which assists in our content rich, developmentally appropriate program that supports active learning and promotes children’s progress in all developmental areas.  

The overall program and curriculum is continuously growing and is implemented throughout the day with an activity schedule that focuses on all building blocks of development.

Each day the children are greeted upon arrival then immediately engaged with their daily routine. When walking into your child’s developmentally appropriate classroom, you will notice the surroundings to be age appropriate and individually appropriate as well as culturally relevant to all the children in care. It is our job to create an enriching environment, a place where children feel trust, consistency and are able to build on their unique characteristics.

At Lil’ People’s World our children are grouped not only by their age but also based on their emotional and developmental readiness. Children are transitioned into a different group only when it has been determined through observation and the completion of a developmental assessment. 

This will aide in determining whether the child is physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively ready to advance to the next group. Lil’ People’s World believes that a child’s growth experience begins the moment they enter the door and continues on through the time they spend at home.

We at Lil’ People’s World strive to make an on-going effort to value children as individuals and embrace their unique contributions to set the success in school and in life.

Creative Curriculum

A Creative Curriculum helps a child acquire the social competence and skills needed to succeed as confident learners. Creative Curriculum helps children acquire social competence and the skills they need to succeed as learners.  At Lil’ People’s World we believe that children learn through play and that we are here to create a developmentally appropriate environment to help them do just that.

The 5 basic components of Creative Curriculum are:

  • How Children Develop and Learn
  • The Learning Environment 
  • What Children Learn 
  • The Teacher’s Role 
  • The Family’s Role

How Children Develop and Learn

Observing the children and knowing the characteristics of each individual child helps identify ways to promote their learning in the classroom environment. We allow the children the opportunity to develop at the rate of their developmental needs, interests and personality.

The Learning Environment 

Classrooms are set up in learning centers, which are independent stations throughout the classroom where students can explore open-ended activities to foster creativity, problem-solving, social interaction and learning.   They include but are not limited to blocks, dramatic play, manipulative play, art, library, sensory, science, music and movement, computers, and outdoors.

What Children Learn

The planned daily curriculum in addition to the classroom interest centers consists of different areas of learning.  Throughout the day, your child will experience activities in circle time, art, small motor, large motor, letters and numbers, sensory, science, and dramatic play.

The Teacher’s Role 

The teachers are dedicated to helping your child progress.  In doing so, their role with the children is to build positive relationships, guide the children with learning, evaluate their learning experiences, and nurture each individual child.   

The Family’s Role 

We strive to maintain positive communication with all families. With this, we hope each child will benefit from having a strong partnership and support in their learning.  

How can you get involved?

Be Involved With Curriculum

Ask the teacher or check the parent board to find out what the curriculum will be for the week. Implement learning at home by asking your child questions, adding additional activities at home, and discussing their day.

Ask Questions

Come a little early to pick up your child and get involved with the teacher and their style of teaching.  Communicate to the teachers your child’s individual needs to help better understand your child. 

Know How Your Child Learns Best

Learn from your child, figure out how your child learns best and help convey that to the teacher.  Communicate ways they may benefit from the learning environment.

Infant Curriculum

To help the infants reach appropriate milestones, we work on motor activities called Physical Experiences which focus on large and small muscles.  

Throughout the day, the infants will accomplish four activities directed towards infant development.  Before the age of one, the baby is learning to understand the things you are saying.

For this reason, we provide a Listening and Talking Experience that includes reading books, singing songs, or simply talking about the surroundings. 

To help the infants reach appropriate milestones, we work on large motor activities called Physical.

Experiences which focus on large and small muscles. The process of art with infants is to create, explore, and experiment with smells, textures, and tools to be able to utilize as they grow older.  

This activity is called Creative Experience.  In our Learning from the World Experiences infants explore sensory and are introduced to the world around us.

Toddler Curriculum

Creative Curriculum focuses on meeting the child’s basic needs, fostering social-emotional development, developing relationships, and supporting cognition and brain development.

The goal of our toddler curriculum is to help children develop both their body and their minds in a safe and healthy place. 

These early, positive interactions with caring adults can give young children the confidence they need to explore their surroundings and take joy in their day-to-day discoveries. 

Creative Curriculum with toddlers focuses on meeting the child’s basic needs, fostering social-emotional development, developing relationships, and supporting cognition and brain development.

Preschool Curriculum

Creative Curriculum focuses on meeting the child’s basic needs, fostering social-emotional development, developing relationships, and supporting cognition and brain development.

The Creative Curriculum for Preschool is a comprehensive, scientifically based early childhood curriculum that has been shown through experimental studies to improve classroom quality and cognitive and social-emotional outcomes in young children. 

It promotes positive physical, social, and cognitive outcomes for children through a variety of activities including fine motor, large motor, sensory, art, dramatic play, and science.
