Children's Choice Classics© 2.0 Curriculum
Children's Choice Classics© is our innovative, classroom -proven, literacy-based curriculum.
- Children's Choice Classics© is a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate curriculum written for infants, toddlers, two-year-olds, preschoolers, Pre-K, and school-age children.
- We choose great children's books for all age groups and then create concrete learning experiences drawn from the books and based on children's interests and abilities.
- This approach to learning promotes a love for reading, teaches a respect for books, and encourages children to become lifelong learners.
To ensure that we stay current with research and trends in our field, we updated our curriculum into Children's Choice Classics 2.0© in the fall of 2012 to include a strong emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) experiences. While the platform of literacy is always the basis of our curriculum, Children's Choice Classics 2.0© is now just as strong in STEM so that preschool and Pre-K children are better prepared to enter kindergarten.
Children's Choice Classics© exemplifies the best practices in early care and education as established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our curriculum fosters children's critical thinking and creativity. Our educators also use their expertise to design additional learning experiences that encourage active learning based on children's interests and developmental needs. Children's Choice Classics© includes a variety of parent materials to make sure they can stay involved in their child's early education experience.
Children's Choice Learning Centers is a member of Character Counts! Character Counts is a coalition comprised of thousands of schools, communities, and organizations that are committed to teaching America's children to become people who can be trusted to make good decisions based on principle rather than expediency. In our preschool and school-age classrooms, we focus on the Six Pillars of Character — trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. We provide ideas and activities to encourage these universal values which we believe define us at our best, however diverse our views and backgrounds.
"I can fully endorse your product. You have created a developmentally appropriate curriculum using quality children's literature as your base. The curriculum packets will help teachers incorporate good literature in the classroom, and allow them to create units of study that address the important developmental domains of each child."
