The curriculum at Educare is based on "The Creative Curriculum" published by Teaching Strategies. Creative Curriculum is a state-approved curriculum by the Maryland Department of Education. Each classroom is divided into centers called interest areas. As stated in the Creative Curriculum (p. 62):
A physical space divided into interest areas is an ideal setting for children who want to explore, make things, experiment, and pursue their own interests. Separate interest areas with varied materials offer children a range of clear choices. Sometimes children want to work quietly, either alone or with other children. Areas devoted to books, art activities, or toys and games provide several choices for quieter activities. Areas set aside for dramatic play, block building, or large muscle activities provide choices for active engagement.
Content areas of literacy, math, science, social studies, and the arts are addressed through teacher-directed and child-selected activities. Content areas are supported throughout the daily schedule and materials selected for each interest area.
Units of study for each month help to focus learning for the center programs. Planning for each topic targets a particular developmental stage and specific interests of children in each classroom. Subtopics selected to explore may vary from room-to-room.
Lesson planning forms provide the week-at-a-glance for parents and are posted in each room. Daily schedules are also posted describing activities in a predictable order of events.
