Curriculum and sample schedules for infants and toddlers

All Wonderspring centers utilize the The Creative Curriculum, a research-based curriculum that supports the development of the whole child.  The Creative Curriculum® for Infants, Toddlers & Twos, Third Edition is a comprehensive curriculum that offers daily support, guidance, and inspiration to teachers and caregivers of our youngest learners. It includes:

  • Activities designed to foster responsive routines and relationships  
  • Songs and rhymes that encourage interactions between children and caregivers
  • Learning materials designed to foster children’s curiosity and exploration

The Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers & Twos is focused on growing strong connections between teacher and child. Teachers collect ongoing child observations to help create lesson plans and help each child meet his or her developmental goals. Each child’s schedule, developmental stage and the family’s needs are all supported by the activities and routines planned throughout the day.
