Curriculum Learning Communities
The Curriculum Learning Communities (CLC) program helps early learning programs implement developmentally appropriate curricula, which is a requirement of all School Readiness providers. At this time, CLC supports programs that use Creative Curriculum, with plans to include other approved curricula in the future based on provider demand. CLC is based on best practices and lessons learned from local and national early childhood curriculum implementation initiatives.
Goals of CLC
The goals of the Curriculum Learning Communities project are to:
- improve fidelity and accountability for curriculum implementation through job embedded professional development
- empower programs and teachers by building onsite capacity through innovative strategies and systematic training and support
How does CLC work?
Each Curriculum Learning Community consists of groups of 15-20 centers that are implementing the same curriculum. The group works together to implement the curriculum over time, share successes, and work to solve challenges.
