The R.I.S.e. cuRRicuLum


The Creative Curriculum® System for Preschool helps teachers ensure that they are focusing on what matters most for children at every age. This curriculum is fully aligned with New Jersey Preschool Teaching and Learning Standards. Teachers will implement experiential activities that include dramatic play, art, music, movement, science, math, and reading readiness.

Students will also develop behavioral and emotional regulation skills through the infusion of the PATHS® curriculum in the classroom. PATHS® is the research-based and proven-effective social and emotional learning (SEL) curricula for children in preschool. Innovative techniques including bibliotherapy, art, puppetry, play, and music will be incorporated to facilitate emotional intelligence, self-control, social competence, positive peer relations, and interpersonal problem-solving skills. Key objectives in promoting these developmental skills are to prevent and to reduce behavioral and emotional problems while improving educational outcomes.
