Education staff make decisions in the curriculum planning process to help children gain skills and confidence. The curriculum decisions will encourage children to be actively involved in the learning process, to experience a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and materials, and to pursue their own interests in the context of life, their community, family culture and world. The curriculum plan integrates the various Head Start components. Curriculum will be developmentally and linguistically appropriate while recognizing each child’s rate of development, interests, temperament, and cultural background.
Family information and input is a required component of curriculum planning and implementation. Parents will be given opportunities to contribute to curriculum plans. Weekly curriculum plans are developed in advance to document the sequence, times, and use of all required program curricula.
