Themes And Units – Preschool

Scottsdale Academy utilizes the Creative Curriculum®, and we supplement one lesson a week from a character development curriculum – including the Kindness Curriculum® or the I Love You Rituals®. The Creative Curriculum® is based on goals and objectives that are age appropriate. Our preschool lesson plans have weekly, engaging theme-based activities. This chart outlines the themes we use that promote early childhood development.
