At Broward Christian Academy we use the Creative Curriculum to engage students in learning. On your tour, you will see our classrooms are divided into 8 centers- art, math, science, dramatic play, sensory and water play, library, manipulatives, and blocks. This encourages each child to learn in multiple ways. The curriculum encourages teachers to plan their lessons for the week and to include all the centers. Part of what makes The Creative Curriculum an excellent teaching tool is it uses weekly themes to build upon prior knowledge.
We teach based on what each child knows and use objectives and assessments to guide them to new skills and learning milestones. As the week progresses they will learn new things to add to the subject at hand. We truly believe this approach to learning encourages students to be confident learners and grasp BIG concepts. We encourage you to ask to see one of our lesson plans posted on the bulletin board of each classroom.
You will get to see the variety of ways they will learn in our program. One day they’re artists learning to paint with different tools and textures and the following day they’re scientists experimenting with cause and effect. Each parent will receive a copy of the week’s lesson plan emailed to them in their child’s daily report on Monday. This way families can continue the learning at home with their little ones.
