School Districts providing programs insure that instruction is provided by certified teachers, who deliver a curriculum specifically designed for preschool. The statewide voluntary preschool program for four year old children is an investment in Iowa’s future.
The District will be certified based on implementation of the Iowa Quality Preschool Program standards.
The Boone Community School District Preschool uses The Creative Curriculum as a foundation for learning. The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children’s learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. The Creative Curriculum uses theme-based approaches to learning and is designed to capitalize on the natural learning experiences that occur in learning centers. Thematic units incorporate various subject areas into developmentally appropriate activities to help student growth in gross motor development, fine motor development, language and communication, and social and emotional development.
ECSE- Early Childhood Special Education Program for three and four year old children with IEPs follow the same specialized curriculum, and focuses on developmental needs.
