Curriculum

The curriculum utilized by all our preschool centers is based on the California Preschool Learning Foundations and Frameworks and the Desired Results Development Profile (DRDP 2015) assessment system. These program standards and assessment tools were developed by the California Department of Education (CDE), Early Education and Support Division to increase program quality in early care and education programs and to ensure children enter the elementary school system ready to learn and be successful. BAE’s Ed. Preschool program uses an integrated, emergent approach to curriculum that capitalizes on the strengths of the individual child as well as develops areas that need improvement, is developmentally, linguistically, and culturally appropriate, and acknowledges and embraces diversity. Emergent curriculum is an approach that permits learning activities to arise out of each child’s interests, actions, or unanticipated events.

Our curriculum is designed to be child-centered, reflect the philosophy and goals of BAE’s Ed., and to include the developmental domains that represent crucial areas of early learning and development that contribute to young children’s readiness for school. Our daily lesson plans include a focused area from the DRDP 2015 and the corresponding foundations from the California Preschool Curriculum Frameworks, as well as areas of individual children’s needs.

Enrichment Activities, Events and Field Trips:

We offer special enrichment activities throughout the year that enhance the learning and understanding of a theme or area of interest the children have. Our main emphasis is on bringing experiences to our center. We will offer a variety of special visitor talks; for example, the fire department comes to talk about safety with the children. We will communicate these events through flyers and newsletters. On occasion, we may take field trips in the community. If a field trip is planned, each parent will need to complete a field trip permission form specific to the trip.

Child Assessments:

BAE’s Education utilizes two developmental assessment tools, The Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP 2015) and the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ).

The DRDP 2015 is a tool developed by the State of California to assess children’s development and to guide the planning of curriculum that meets the needs of individual children in all areas of development (cognitive, social, emotional, physical, etc.) The DRDP 2015 is aligned to the California Preschool Learning and Development Foundations and the Elementary Common Core State Standards.

This assessment instrument was designed to measure developmental outcomes for the individual child and to provide teaching staff with information needed to support the development of children in their care and to improve their classrooms and programs as a whole. Parent input is a necessary component of this assessment. Through regular communication with your child’s teacher and at conference time, you will be asked what skills and abilities your child has at home, and together you will set learning goals that reflect your child’s needs and strengths. A DRDP 2015 will be completed within 60 days of your child’s enrollment and again every six months thereafter.
