The Creative Curriculum is the framework used for learning in the disciplines of literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, the arts and technology. Through exploration and hands on learning, students explore the history and culture of their native countries (many Caribbean islands) and the USA. Instruction within cultural context appeals to both students and parents. Teachers use the Creative Curriculum framework to implement a high-quality developmentally appropriate program to achieve the Florida Early Learning and Development Standards in all learning domains.
The center provides services for children ages six weeks through 12 years. Over 60 percent of the population served receives financial assistance through the school readiness program. In addition to the academic programs offered, students are offered breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack. These meals are subsidized by the Food Program through the Department of Health. The mission of the center entails providing a rich learning environment for children in the community. This includes integrating arts in our curriculum.
