The Frankfort Early Learning Academy At Second Street School implements the Creative Curriculum for Preschool in the Preschool and Wrap Around Preschool classrooms. The Creative Curriculum for Infants and Toddlers is also implemented in the Wrap Around Two-Year-Old classroom.
Preschool children learn best through hands-on discovery through play, interaction, and experiementation. The Creative Curriculum is a research-based, comprehensive curriculum that features exploration and discovery as a way of learning. The curriculum experiences are linked directly to 38 research-based Objectives for Development and Learning. These objectives are directly linked to Kentucky's Early Childhood Standards. Our students are assessed based on the Objectives for Development and Learning through the use of the Teaching Strategies GOLD (TSG) Assessment.
The TSG assessment is completed by teachers during three to four "checkpoints" throughout the school year, and parents and guardians receive reports detailing their child's development during each checkpoint period.
