Young children learn by doing. The Head Start program uses the “Creative Curriculum” to provide developmentally appropriate activities. This method recognizes each child as an individual and builds on the skills the child already has.
The teachers are enrolled in Early Childhood classes at Campbellsville University
Classrooms are arranged into learning centers with materials that are safe, developmentally appropriate and challenging. Activities and materials allow each child to experience success. The activities are play-oriented, hands on and child initiated.
These include: art, sand and water, dramatic play, literacy, block play, music, computer, gross and fine motor activities, as well as, math and science experiences. Adults serve as facilitators with the children to expand learning experiences.
Classroom staff maintain contact with parents to establish goals and discuss their child’s progress. This will be accomplished by at least two home visits, two parent/child conferences, at home follow-up report after each Teaching Strategies Gold assessment and a year-end progress report.
