Our Curriculum


Perkins CDC Student at WorkOur curriculum is based on the understanding of Developmentally Appropriate Practice which acknowledges that children learn best in play-oriented environments that are both age and individually defined. 

At our Center children have many opportunities to make choices about play, how they play, and with whom they play.

Across all age groups, from infants to pre-schoolers, our curriculum supports the following:

  • Children are encouraged to actively explore with materials.
  • The process of learning is more important than specific products.
  • Teachers facilitate children's play instead of directing their play.
  • Children are allowed to work at different developmental levels.
  • Activities reflect and celebrate cultural and social diversity.
  • Teachers encourage children to make choices.
