    ​​​​Curriculum
    Creative Curriculum: Objectives for Development and Learning guides preschool education in all BVSD preschools. It is organized in nine areas of development and learning. Major areas of child growth and development include Social-Emotional, Physical, Language, and Cognitive Development. Five areas focus on content learning to provide outcomes for early learning standards in Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social Studies, and The Arts. Teaching Strategies GOLD is linked to Creative Curriculum providing developmental progressions in all areas that define children’s growth and help us plan for next steps in learning. 

    The literacy journey begins in preschool. In order to become confident and competent readers, at preschool, through Creative Curriculum integrated Areas of Interest, preschoolers practice seven components of literacy development 1) literacy as a source of enjoyment, 2) vocabulary and language, 3) phonological awareness, 4) knowledge of print, 5) letters and words, 6) comprehension, and 7) books and other texts. 

    Mathematical, or numeracy development, focuses on five processes: 1) problem solving, 2) reasoning, 3) communicating, 4) connecting, and 5) representing. Math content focuses on 1) number and operations, 2) geometry and spatial sense, 3) measurement, 4) patterns and 5) data analysis.
