The Marion City Schools Preschool Program has adopted and uses Early Learning Developmental Standards and the Creative Curriculum, Read It Again, Second-Step and Every Day in Pre-K Math. All programs are research based and aligned with the state's early learning and development standards.
Creative Curriculum combines the latest research and the freshest ideas into a forward-thinking approach to learning - one that honors creativity and respects the role that teachers play in making learning exciting and relevant for every child in their classroom.
Read It Again Pre-K focuses on the skill areas of narrative, vocabulary, print knowledge, and phonological awareness. A national panel of research scientists reviewing over 200 studies found these skills to be among the most important in preparing young children for later success in reading.
Second-Step Social Emotional Curriculum focuses on friendship skills, emotional recognition, problem-solving skills training and social and anger coping skills training.
Every Day in Pre-K: Math presents connections across several math strands daily that enhances transfer of learning.
