Our curriculum

The Preschool Program and Georgia Pre-K Program use a two-tiered curriculum that includes The Creative Curriculum and the Social-Communication, Emotional Regulation, and Transactional Support (SCERTS) Model.

The Creative Curriculum assumes that all children learn and progress through interacting with social and physical environments. It provides an open framework but is informed by a set of guiding principles and practices for children of various developmental levels. The Creative Curriculum allows for modifications to ensure success for all children. It is also inclusive and respectful of a child’s family’s values, beliefs and experiences.

The SCERTS Model is complementary to the Creative Curriculum. It is an assessment-intervention approach that addresses the challenges faced by children who have autism. The curriculum targets individualized intervention objectives for students with the goals to improve social communication and emotional regulation. It uses transactional supports, which are intervention or teaching strategies embedded in everyday activities to support learning and active engagement.
