Our Curriculum

Research-Based Creative Curriculum

At Sparkles, our goal is to utilize proven, research-based curriculum resources designed to produce creative, confident thinkers. Using the nationally recognized Creative Curriculum system, we incorporate the latest research and best practices to address the learning needs of infants, toddlers, and preschool children by using age-specific objectives for learning and development. These objectives have been identified as strong predictors of school and life success, building traits associated with leadership.

Creative Curriculum’s content is aligned with Virginia’s Foundation Blocks for Early Learning, Virginia State Learning Standards, and national universal preschool/kindergarten readiness initiatives, meaning your child will be prepared for success at school from Day 1.

Study units support the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) approach to learning, with highly interactive activities to promote critical thinking, problem-solving and team-building skills, enabling children to experience learning in fun and exciting ways!

To help you gain a realistic understanding of what the children learn and when they learn it, we have provided the following child development chart.
