The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool
A Comprehensive, Integrated Curriculum and Assessment System
To ensure positive outcomes for children who attend pre-kindergarten, programs need an appropriate and effective curriculum and assessment system. The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the National Association of Early Childhood Specialists in State Departments of Education (NAECS/SDE) recently published definitions of appropriate curriculum and assessment and provided indicators of effectiveness. The Joint Position Statement, Early Childhood Curriculum, Assessment and Program Evaluation: Building an Effective, Accountable System in Programs Birth Through Age 8 (2003) provides clear guidance for determining whether a curriculum and assessment system is likely to produce positive outcomes for children, preparing them for success in school and in life.
