                                                        Classrooms at ECE


ALL aspects of the school are designed to support children’s growth and development. Decisions ranging from the physical set-up of the furniture and materials in the classroom to the selection of books in the library, to the type of tomato plant growing in our garden are all focused, intentional, and grounded in the foundational practices that guide our school. Teachers observe children and use their interests to shape the curricular choices provided in the classroom—literacy is infused throughout each learning experience.

                             We are using the following curriculums: 


The curriculum, instruction and assessment adopted by the Englewood ECE program at Maddox meets all the standards outlined in the Colorado Early Learning and Development Guidelines, the Colorado Department of Education Academic Standards and School Readiness Criteria, and the Head Start Learning Outcomes. The High/Scope curriculum model guides us as we plan and implement the preschool/childcare program. It emphasizes the process of learning. The curriculum adapts to children with a wide range of abilities and builds on their strengths and interests. It is a "hands-on" program with a focus on active involvement. We supplement High/Scope with other resources to ensure that we are fully preparing students for kindergarten.
