"A place where every branch of your child's life will bear fruit."
Fruitful Trees will implement the Creative Curriculum. The Creative Curriculum balances teacher‐planned and child‐initiated learning, emphasizing responsiveness to children's strengths, interests, needs, and learning styles. Nationally known for being forward‐thinking, comprehensive, and rigorously researched, it helps teachers plan and implement content‐rich, developmentally appropriate programs that support active learning and promote children's progress in all developmental areas. The Creative Curriculum translates child development theory and research into best practice, clearly defining the teacher’s vital role in connecting content, teaching, and learning for preschool children. It discusses the five components of teaching preschool children effectively: how children develop and learn the learning environment what children learn caring and teaching partnering with families Whatever their levels of experience, teachers can find the support they need to offer appropriate learning experiences for all the children in their classrooms, including dual‐language learners, children with disabilities, and advanced learners.
