P-CCS Early Childhood Programs promote a positive learning experience for children and their families in a safe, nurturing environment.  Experiences in the classroom  are designed to support children as they develop  problem solving abilities, build self-esteem, increase social development, extend independence and support a sense of curiosity and wonder for learning.

Our Early Childhood Teachers use the Teaching Strategies Creative Curriculum to support learning in the classroom.  The curriculum is researched based and is aligned to the Michigan Department of Education Early Childhood Standards of Quality.  The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all young learners and is the foundation that supports:

  • Social emotional development

  • Language and literacy development

  • Cognitive development

  • Fine and gross motor development
