Developing a program that meets the needs of all children is a difficult task at best. Curriculum involves decisions about how children learn, when learning takes place, and what is to be learned. It requires ELCC practitioners to "Implement curriculum that is thoughtfully planned, challenging, engaging, developmentally appropriate, culturally and linguistically responsive, comprehensive, and likely to promote good outcomes for all young children." (NAECY, 2003).
This workshop is designed to help participants identify with the many elements of an inclusive, comprehensive curriculum. It will guide them through developmentally appropriate standards of practice. Through hands-on activities participants will explore strategies to set the stage for individualized learning and the importance of establishing schedules, routines and transitions.
