Social Emotional Preschool Curriculum Consumer Report 2015


The Social Emotional Preschool Curriculum Consumer Report provides information and guidance for Head Start programs as they select curricula based on the strengths and needs of their participating children and teachers. The curricula reviewed in this report were rated for their implementation in center-based programs, and each includes elements designed to strengthen the teaching and learning of children’s social emotional and approaches to learning skills.

This report is intended to complement the Preschool Curriculum Consumer Report (2014), which reviewed comprehensive curricula that covered multiple Head Start learning domains (i.e., Language Development, Literacy Knowledge & Skills, Mathematics Knowledge & Skills, Social & Emotional Development).

In this report, additional curricula are reviewed that focus on the domains of Social & Emotional Development and Approaches to Learning. Programs should decide whether a domain specific curriculum might be needed in addition to their comprehensive curriculum. This Social Emotional Preschool Curriculum Consumer Report can help you choose a more specific curriculum that best meets your needs. A social emotional curriculum, paired with a comprehensive curriculum, could increase the number and quality of social emotional and/or approaches to learning activities that are being implemented.
