Preschool Planning and Curriculum

To have a successful daycare/preschool, it is important for teachers to plan a curriculum that takes into consideration a personal teaching philosophy, student interests, and developmental needs of each aged child. Planning allows teachers to be intentional with what and how they teach children as well as creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere that is prepared and takes each individual’s needs into account.
