  • Communication across sectors, based upon these common goals for children.

  • is based on 38 objectives for development and learning, which are fully aligned with the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework as well as early learning standards for every state.

  • offers daily opportunities to individualize instruction, helping teachers meet the needs of every type of learner.
  • addresses all the important areas of learning, from social-emotional and math to technology and the arts, and incorporates them throughout every part of every day.
  • offers daily, built-in opportunities for observation, helping teachers and administrators clearly see the strong relationship between curriculum and assessment.
  • offers complete support for working with English- and dual-language learners, including detailed guidance that helps to build teachers’ knowledge about best practices.
  • contains guidance for working with all learners, including advanced learners and children with disabilities.
