ECLC Curriculum

Curriculum

The ECLC follows the Creative Curriculumas a foundation. This curriculum includes resources in both English and Arabic. The Center endorses a dual language emersion model where teachers interact with the children in both languages in the same classroom. The teaching teams to work collaboratively to develop the curriculum, integratere sources and subject content/developmental goals, plan complimentary lessons/experiences in both languages,and develop studies.

The ECLC program provides for growth and development of the “whole child” (social, emotional, physical, language and cognitive) and encourages positive interaction between family,school,and the community. It respects the role of the family as the first and primary teachers of their children. Young children learn best by becoming involved in experiential learning that is authentic, sequential and that provides hands-on developmentally appropriate activities.


Research-based

The Creative Curriculum®isa leading scientifically based, comprehensive curriculum for programs serving children from birth to age 5.  It combines the latest research and ideas in to a forward-thinking approach to learning-one that honors creativity and respects the role that teachers play in making learning exciting and relevant for every child in their class rooms.

Research shows that your child’s early experiences are crucial to his/her development. We understand the role of the environment in the learning experience, and thus ensure that ours is stimulating, nurturing, and fun. We base our customized program on The Creative Curriculum of the United States.The Creative Curriculum is a well-rounded program that addresses the needs of early childhood education professionals, children, and their families.

Research demonstrates that when young children have nurturing, consistent and loving experiences, they flourish.  They learn to trust, develop the confidence to explore their environment, make discoveries, care about others and respect individual differences, and begin to view themselvesas competent learners. When young children receive high-quality care,they are more likely to become sociable, capable preschoolers who get along with others, demonstrate self-control, and love learning.

A strong program must incorporate academic content and skill development within a framework of appropriate (play-based) activities while allowing each child to grow and be successful in all of the developmental areas. Young children learn best by becoming involved in experiential learning that is authentic, sequential and that provides hands-on developmentally appropriate activities.

The unique approach is designed to inspire teachers, to help them create a high-quality learning environment and, most of all, to support their important efforts as they open doors to successful learning and promote positive outcomes for all children.
