CGSKid uses a blended developmentally appropriate curriculum. We have reviewed the State guidelines for Early Childhood Education and linked them to components of The Creative Curriculum® and American Montessori, both approaches support the belief that children learn best through hands-on experiences. Both Creative Curriculum and the Montessori approach were designed to support children in becoming independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment.
