Pinnacle Early Childhood Curriculum™, based on the works of Piaget, Gardner, and Erikson, provides hands-on, center-based activities designed to develop emerging skills. Written by early childhood experts, Pinnacle Curriculum provides a research-based educational foundation for the children in our center. In addition, the curriculum supplements the teachers’ education in early childhood development. The children delight in the fun, interactive activities; they develop a love for learning while they grow, play, and have fun!
“The preschool and after school curriculum that teachers LOVE!” Quality child care begins with quality programming. Pinnacle Early Childhood Curriculum™ is designed to engage children in developmentally appropriate activities that move them toward their potential. It provides teachers with daily information that makes creating meaningful learning experiences possible, without the time-consuming research of lesson planning.
Infants and Toddlers — Pinnacle Curriculum for infants and toddlers provides activities that stimulate growth and development incorporated into the daily routines. Encouraging an atmosphere of caring, love, and hugs, Pinnacle Curriculum gives teachers fun activities to do with little ones all day – even during the “Radical Routine” of eating! Infant and toddler guides follow a weekly format and teachers choose several daily activities for each child. Lesson plans are personalized, making it easy to craft the lessons to meet each child’s specific needs.
Twos, Threes, and Fours — For two-, three-, and four-year-olds, Pinnacle Curriculum follows a daily activity format that matches the ever-changing needs of each rapidly developing child! Each age group has a separate curriculum that is specific to their educational and emotional needs, interests, and activity level. Pinnacle Curriculum provides for these age groups small and large group time activities, along with center-based activities for as many centers as a classroom can hold. The activities in Pinnacle Curriculum meet learning objectives that will help each child move towards their potential as they explore and experiment with materials and activities in the classroom.
School Age — Pinnacle Curriculum for school-age children takes into consideration the special needs of this special group. Whether they want to work on a creative art project, do homework, or just relax in the “Chill Zone,” Pinnacle Curriculum assists the school-age teacher in creating a fun environment where after-schoolers want to be! Pinnacle Curriculum provides opportunities for students to interact with each other as they participate in activities that challenge their creativity in a social/recreational outlet for that after-school energy!
