CURRICULUM

Creative Learning Academy is an early learning center for infants, toddlers, and Prekindergarten children.  Activities in the classroom reflect our commitment to provide a developmentally appropriate experience for all children.

Our program aims to promote four key domains of a child’s development:

  • physical health and motor skills
  • social and emotional development
  • language and communication
  • cognitive development.

Our approach is rooted in widely accepted early-childhood research that indicates the deepest, most effective learning is ingrained through play-based learning.

Our theme based curriculum supports free and structured learning in both the group, and individual setting.  Play is an essential part of childhood. It offers the freedom children need to explore their surroundings, develop new ideas and concepts, and build a sense of competence, autonomy, and a positive self-concept.   Play based exploration allows children to apply what they have learned to different situations, and practice decision making in each scenario.

INFANT PROGRAM (6 weeks to 18 months)

Babies are at an amazing and delightful stage in development, and make enormous social, cognitive and physical leaps. Our teachers spend lots of time cuddling and talking to your baby to instill trust and provide a healthy early learning environment for movement, exploration and communication.

This stage is an important bonding time when our caregivers can help build the foundation for healthy self-esteem and a sense of confidence. Babies are often busy exploring the world around them, and we provide a range of experiences to expose them to a greater variety of stimuli.

Our Infant Program at Creative Learning Academy in Sugar Land is a loving and nurturing environment which focuses on our four areas of development.

Once babies are ready to eat table food, included in our tuition, we also provide breakfast, lunch, supper, and 2 snacks throughout the day at Creative Learning Academy in Sugar Land.

Physical Health and Motor Development

We support the development of motor skills with blocks and shape boards, and encourage grasping, clutching, and movement. We support your baby as he or she rolls and learns to crawl, stand, and walk; and provide individual resting times for each child.

Social and Emotional Development

We hold, cuddle, hug, smile, and laugh with infants. We respond to your baby with warmth and sensitivity, and use words and facial expressions to communicate; and use family photos to promote self-awareness

Language and Communication Development

We talk with your child and acknowledge their sounds, verbalizations, and body language as communication. We talk to infants while doing everyday activities and name objects in the environment when infants show interest in them.

Cognitive Development

We help your child explore the environment around them by placing objects with different sizes, shapes, textures and sounds within the infant’s reach. We create a variety of safe spaces and objects for older infants to crawl over and around.

TODDLER PROGRAM (18 – 36 months)

You’ll see enormous social, cognitive and physical changes unfold in your baby at this stage. Great leaps are made in our Toddler Program; from our baby’s first steps, to learning to share, to potty-training!

Highlights of this stage include language development and building a sense of independence.  Toddlers will learn how to play alone and alongside their peers.  During this stage, we also introduce themed monthly units that provide a variety of daily experiences through structured learning a free play.

The daily schedule for our toddlers includes indoor and outdoor activities that promote our four domains of development. Included in our tuition, we also provide breakfast, lunch, supper and 2 snacks throughout the day at Creative Learning Academy in Sugar Land.

Physical Health and Motor Development

With our toddlers, we promote self-care skills such as feeding, cleaning, hand-washing, and dressing. We facilitate imaginary play with blocks and puzzles that support large-motor development and eye-hand coordination along with activities such as kicking balls, tossing, writing, drawing, and lacing.

Social and Emotional Development

We help toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity by encouraging interactions with other children in group activities and group play. We continuously provide encouragement for trying activities and playing with new people.  Our caregivers respond to toddlers’ emotional expressions by naming their emotion (“I can see you are sad today, Jamie”) and model how to express emotions appropriately.

Language and Communication Development

We use circle time storytelling and word games to help your child practice imitating and responding to others. Our caregivers respond to toddlers’ questions with simple and complete sentences to increase the number of words a toddler hears.

Cognitive Development

We focus our learning areas on dramatic play, mathematics, creative arts, language, and sensory exploration.  We provide opportunities to identify basic colors and shapes, and introduce simple patterns.  We start talking to toddlers about where different activities happen, and what we do there; and suggest next steps in pretend play.

PRE-SCHOOL (3 Year Olds)

The preschool years are often marked by large increases in creativity and self-expression. Parents may notice an uptick in artwork and creative expression. Preschoolers are also curious about everything that they see and hear.

This is a great time for caregivers to encourage imagination and teach social skills to help them adapt to a new environment filled with other kids. The world is growing for preschool kids and it’s important for them to have encouragement and opportunity to explore their world and build relationships with others. This is also an ideal time for children to engage in learning centers for math, science, dramatic play, music, and creative art to provide opportunities to balance both shared and independent learning experiences.

The daily schedule for our pre-schoolers includes indoor and outdoor activities that promote our four domains of development. Included in our tuition, we also provide breakfast, lunch, supper and 2 snacks throughout the day at Creative Learning Academy in Sugar Land.

We support the development of motor skills with blocks and shape boards, and encourage grasping, clutching, and movement. We support your baby as he or she rolls and learns to crawl, stand, and walk; and provide individual resting times for each child.

PRE-K (4 to 5 Year Olds)

Getting your child ready for kindergarten is about more than just practicing letters and numbers. School is a brave step toward exploring a new world, and our Scholastic Pre-K Program immerses children in real-world themes that begin with what is familiar to children and connects to the new world around them.

Our Pre-K Program includes daily scheduled indoor and outdoor activities using the Texas School Readiness (TSR) Program, a collaboration between Scholastic and the State of Texas, to prepare them for school. Activities include opportunities for:

  • Social-Emotional Development
  • Thinking Skills and Sensory Development
  • Small and Large Muscle Development
  • Language Development
  • Math, Science, Social Studies and Fine Arts
  • Technology
  • Developing self-help skills such as toileting, hand-washing, returning equipment to storage areas or containers, and serving and feeding
