No two facilities will have the same curriculum; that is not the aim of the “The Preschool Curriculum Manual”. It is a valuable tool to enable you to put in place your own curriculum from a broad range of ideas and projects, all of which have been well thought out and thoroughly tested and put into day to day use with the children who have been in my care over the years.
Each project includes space for your own notes so that you can adapt it as you go to suit your particular needs and those of the children in your care.
A well balanced curriculum must ensure a balance between child led learning and adult initiated learning. It need not be overly detailed as long as it adheres to the basic principles of the children and their learning.
It should be tailored to the ethos of your facility and should leave room for the emerging interests of the children as the progress through the year. Once you ensure all principles of early learning are covered it can be as simple or as broad ranging as you wish.
“The Preschool Curriculum Manual” will help you achieve the best your service can be.
