Preschool Curriculum Update
The 2019-2020 school year brought sweeping curriculum changes for the preschool learning community. Guided by the newly revised Colorado Academic Standards (CAS 2020), Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP) recommendations from experts in the field of Early Learning, and a cadre of preschool educators, the cross-content inquiry studies came to life. Each inquiry study begins with an essential question connected to science or social studies standards, with early literacy and math skills taught in service of the content. Additional details about the structure of the preschool inquiry studies can be found in the video below. Looking ahead to the 2020-2021 school year, educators will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the content offered in the existing inquiry studies; while refining instructional practice that supports students’ natural curiosity, independence, and social-emotional skills.
As always, please reach out to the Preschool-3rd grade (P3) Team with questions.
