 Cocoa Center Curriculum

Our curriculum of instruction is based on the child-centered Creative Curriculum for Preschoolers and Toddlers and we also incorporate Montessori concepts into our program. Our curriculum is educationally based, with an open framework of educational ideas and practices based on the natural development of young children. We work within the framework of the Creative Curriculum to promote language and literacy skills for young children. We also use techniques from Loving Guidance for our toddler age groups and the Devereux Early Childhood Initiative and Second Step as our character development curriculum.
