Creative Curriculum is the framework for the JCC Early Childhood learning experience. In support of meeting the Illinois Early Learning Standards, a variety of respected teaching methods are implemented to transmit the learning experiences and values that set a JCC Early Childhood education apart.
JCC Early Childhood values the interests of the child and integrates Reggio Emilia into the learning experience. Emergent curriculum, collaborative work, documentation and attention to the look and feel of the classroom contribute to providing depth of experience to the child and parent.
