Our Curriculum 

The curriculum we use is Scholastic's Big Day for Pre-K.  Our curriculum offers 3 "Big Experiences" which are whole group lessons that engage children in "playful, intentional learning, and integrate social-emotional, academic, and physical development" as well as providing strategies for "meaningful conversations that accelerate language development and language acquisition."  (Information gathered from http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/early-learning-program/big-day-for-prekindergarten.htm)
