Our Curriculum

Beanstalk uses a variety of developmentally, culturally and linguistically appropriate teaching approaches. Children learn through meaningful play in learning centers and through intentional teaching during small and large group settings.


Beanstalk centers implement the Creative Curriculum for Preschool and the Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers and Twos. As a content-rich, research-based developmentally appropriate curriculum, it encourages inquiry, exploration and discovery to build the academic and social-emotional skills needed for kindergarten and beyond. Children participates in studies, which are project based investigations of topics that are familiar and interesting to children. When children engage in a study, they have the opportunity to ask questions, investigate the topic and use higher-level thinking and process skills. Family members are invited and encouraged to become involved in the study.
