To support our Budding Scholars approach to learning, Little Sprouts teachers utilize well-researched curriculum tools which have been proven successful in early literacy.
Curriculum tools used to support our early education and preschool programs:
Curiosity Corner is a comprehensive program for three- and four-year-old preschoolers designed to provide a strong foundation in language and literacy, mathematics, science, listening and social skills, creative expression, and positive self-esteem through a holistic, thematic approach to instruction. The well-structured thematic units used are aligned with state and national early learning guidelines.
Peep & The Big Wide World
Young children learn science best through daily natural interactions with their world. Little Sprouts utilizes science curriculum based upon the children’s program 'Peep & the Big Wide World' provided by WGBH, the Boston PBS affiliate. WGBH has provided curriculum kits, teacher’s manuals, and DVDs for each Little Sprouts preschool classroom.
