Curriculum & Assessment

CELC's Curriculum is based on the California Preschool Learning Foundations and Curriculum Framework.  The staff incorporates the High Scope Curriculum, The Letter People and Handwriting Without Teachers into monthly thematic units. These rich foundations allow our staff to plan and provide 3 and 4 year old students with a developmentally appropriate curriculum. 

The developmental areas and skills which are taught and assessed are:

  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Language and Literacy Development 
  • English Language Development
  • Cognitive Development
  • Mathematical Development
  • Physical Development
  • History-Social Science
  • Visual and Performing Arts
  • Science
  • Health 
CELC uses the Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP) , a formative assessment instrument developed by the California Department of Education. This assessment is used continuously throughout the year as a tool for observing and documenting student progress.
