Building a Dynamic Preschool Program Begins With The Curriculum

Bradley Russle 2Today I want to inspire you to create a dynamic preschool program. In fact,  I believe that a dynamic preschool program begins with the Curriculum. Furthermore, I have discovered that parents tend to choose child care program, based on their curriculum program.

Please allow me to use my Center as an example. In my Child Care Center, I pull ideas from several researched based Curriculum programs, including:

  • Creative Curriculum
  • Reggio Emelio
  • Project Construct
  • High Scope
  • along with Biblical Principles from Abeka Curriculum

Moreover, our goal is to meet the developmental needs of the children and provide a high quality preschool program. Furthermore, I have found it to be so  boring to use one curriculum and this is why I pull principles from the curriculum programs listed above.

Furthermore,the principles that we implement in my center (from the curriculum programs listed above) have been proven to prepare our preschoolers for school success!
I am in no way endorsing any of the curriculum programs above, however, I am encouraging you to take a closer look at your Curriculum and consider getting new ideas for your Child Care or Preschool Program.

Also, it is vital that you pick and Implement a curriculum model that fits into the mission of your childcare program.

Curriculum is not only about learning the alphabet and numbers; however, Curriculum is what you do from the time that the kids arrive until they go home.

Here are 5 Easy Ways to Create a Dynamic Preschool Curriculum Program:

1. Start by Creating a brochure that describe your Curriculum in an overview format: Monthly themes, the letter, shape, color of the month, character development topic, social skills focus, etc) By reviewing the researched based curriculum programs above, you will gain some ideas for your brochure.

2. Set-up enriching learning centers in your classrooms.

3. Create a Daily Schedule

4. Require that your staff complete and post lesson plans. (based them on the curriculum theme and developmental needs of the children)

5. Create a System that tracks and assesses the development of the children in your program.

If you don’t have the time to develop your very own curriculum; I have done the work for you in my Curriculum Club.  My Curriculum club derived from my 15 years of writing lesson plans and implementing research based curriculum in my program. Check it out Today! (click here)

Why Aimee Chose the CCBO Curriculum Club?

On July 31, 2013, I launched the Child Care Business Owner Curriculum Club and many Child Care Business Owners have already downloaded their free lessons and joined the club as a paid subscriber to receive their September Lesson Plans.

In fact, I launched the club for many reasons including:

  • I love writing lesson plans
  • I know that lesson planning takes time and I want to provide child care providers with pre-planned lessons, so they can focus on running their business
  • I want to offer providers affordable curriculum materials that will assure a fun and enriching day for young children!

Moreover, as I write this blog post, I am so excited to share a recent testimonial from one of my blog followers and a new member of the Curriculum club.

“Well I was paying $80 for 2 months of curriculum for 1 child! That ends up being $40 a month. I thought it was going to be great because I comes already packaged with crafts a curriculum. guide and learning tools such as flash cards and photo prompts, newsletter, etc.

Then, when the kit arrived I was so disappointed! It covers language, cognitive, social emotional and physical development (with an art craft) -but you only get 1 or two activities a day. For us that’s NOT going to work -especially at that price!

Then what really turned me on to what you’re doing is even though I will be printing more, the cost of the printing ink, paper, supplies plus the subscription price of the club makes it HALF the price of the boxed curriculum AND I can teach as many children with the lessons as I want.

So to sum it up -Your curriculum offers activities in all of the developmental areas EVERYDAY (not just a couple), even with printing and supplies it is 1/2 the price of the commercially boxed kits and offers many printable extras they do not. Lastly, a provider does not have to pay extra to teach the lessons to more children; once the curriculum is purchased, you can teach any size group!

Thanks so much! I’m glad you are a part of my preschool and look forward to teaching from the lesson plans you’ve prepared.
