OUR TODDLERS & PREK-2 CURRICULUM

SCC Preschool applies the HighReach Curriculum on a daily basis for our younger groups of Toddlers and PreK-2. All HighReach Learning curriculum programs are based on the philosophy that children learn best through hands-on activities that address the needs of the whole child. In addition, each HighReach Learning curriculum reflects the belief that children need a balance of child-initiated and teacher-facilitated activities each day. This approach reflects the beliefs of Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, Lev Vygotsky, David Ausubel, and Jerome Bruner. This approach is grounded in sound child development theory and appropriate practices. HighReach Learning also reviews state and national standards for early childhood education and takes these into account when planning curriculum. Themes are used to introduce information and learning takes place as a child explores and manipulates real objects and events.


Toddlers explore everything with boundless energy. This curriculum encourages their sense of discovery with building vocabulary, encouraging imagination, and personalizing learning. Skills and Concepts Covered are: Talking & Listening, Vocabulary, Colors, Social/Emotional Development, Self-Concept, Small/Large Muscle Development and Creative Expression.

As we all know, two year olds are constantly in motion. Our PreK-2 children are determined to learn on their own. The High Reach Curriculum provides a rich learning environment that helps them expand their vocabularies, find appropriate ways to express their creativity, and safely discover the world around them with Curriculum for Twos. Skills and concepts Covered are: Talking & Listening, Vocabulary, Colors & Shapes, Self-Concept, Small/Large Muscle Development, Creative Expression & Arts, Cultural Awareness, Family Participation, Music, Literacy and Language.

Developmentally appropriate programs that address both the age levels of the child and the individual cognitive needs give children a higher quality learning environment.

OUR PREK-3 - PREK-5 (VPK) CURRICULUM

Houghton Mifflin is a scientifically researched-based "hands-on, minds-on" curriculum that aligns with key critical Pre-K learning goals. This comprehensive, integrated program provides children with the foundational skills they need to succeed as lifelong learners and gives teachers the tools necessary to ensure success. This curriculum covers extensive areas necessary for the Pre-Kindergarten student to succeed in Kinder. Developmental and Academic areas covered are: Reading and Literature; Literacy Extensions, Phonological Awareness, Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Music, Writing, Words and Number Recognition, Site Words, Rhyme, Centers, Fine and Gross Motor Skills Development and more.

At Su’s Creative Corner Preschool, we administer an assessment provided by the Houghton Mifflin to indicate the growth and academic development of the child. Administered three times during the year, this scientific assessment (developed by the same group that created DIBELS) evaluates children's growth on the five key literacy and math skills critical to success in Kindergarten:

  • Phonological Awareness

  • Letter Recognition

  • Oral language and Vocabulary

  • Number Sense
