Program and Curriculum

What is curriculum?
Ask ten people and you will likely get 10 different answers. There are a multitude of boxed curriculums out there that you can purchase to use in your family child care, but I am really hoping that you will be able to use some of what you find here to create your own curriculum.

For me, a curriculum is intentional, reflective, and responsive. In other words, you create an environment, provide materials, and plan activities, routines and experiences with specific goals for each child in mind.

Through observation, you collect information on how each child is progressing and reflect on what changes or improvements you might need to make. Next, along with your partner, the child’s parents, you can create an action plan for tweaking your curriculum to respond to the needs of each individual child to ensure developmental success.

Curriculum is not something you plan or create and then just follow for the rest of the year. It is constantly changing as you tweak, observe and respond.
