Curriculum Highlights
The Christina Early Education Center plans and implements developmentally appropriate lessons and activities aligned with the Delaware Early Learning Foundation standards. The CEEC uses Scholastic's Big Day for Pre-K to teach lessons aligned with both the standards as well as Head Start regulations. Additionally, the Second Step program is used to teach early learners social-emotional skills. This program helps teachers guide students as they learn, practice, and apply skills for self-regulation and social-emotional competence. Finally, the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum is designed to help children develop the skills necessary to begin to write. A multisensory approach is used to teach letter formation through songs, activities, and games. Children will also become familiar with concepts of print such as reading from left to right and top to bottom.
