Curriculum Framework in Early Learning Settings


The purpose of this resource document is to assist school division leaders who are implementing or planning to implement an evidence-based curriculum in early childhood programs for young children, including those with developmental delays or disabilities. Early childhood educators may need assistance as they engage young children and provide access to the classroom curriculum. This document may be used as a tool for professional development and training around the curriculum. Preschool children with special needs will accomplish meaningful progress and measurable growth when the elements of a curriculum framework are considered and implemented effectively. Each of the four elements of a curriculum framework are described in this document and a list of resources are included to further facilitate professional development.
