Curriculum

The curriculum plan of the ECC is written and designed to enable our staff to implement and fulfill the goals described in our educational philosophy. It is aligned with Delaware Early Learning Foundations, which is a curriculum plan developed by the Delaware Department of Education to ensure the successful transition of preschool children into kindergarten and achieve success as they continue through their academic careers. The integrity of the curriculum and its implementation is overseen by the ECC Director and the ECC Curriculum Coordinator. The curriculum focuses on skill development that is appropriate to each age group within the program. The structure of our curriculum ensures continuity in skill development from year to year contributing to smooth program transitions.

From our warm, friendly, and accepting teachers and staff, the children will gradually learn and develop the emotional and social skills needed to interact with their peers and others. From specific units discussed in the classroom such as self, family, seasonal changes, friendship, animals, colors, community helpers, and Jewish holidays, the children will learn new things about themselves and their world, develop their natural curiosity, and build a thirst for knowledge that will last a lifetime. From our trained Physical Education specialists, the children will develop body awareness as well as fine and gross motor coordination. From our Judaic and Music Specialists, the children will learn about Jewish tradition while developing their enjoyment and appreciation of music and song.

We emphasize the following skill areas in our curriculum:

  • Social / Emotional Skills
  • Literacy & Language
  • Listening Skills
  • Visual Discrimination Skills
  • Large Motor Skills
  • Manipulative & Fine Motor Skills
  • Social Studies & Community
