Curriculum


At the Parent Child Center, we utilize The Creative Curriculum® in all classrooms. This curriculum helps teachers plan and implement a developmentally appropriate program that promotes children's social-emotional development and learning in the core areas of literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies.

It combines the latest research and the freshest ideas into a forward-thinking approach to learning--one that honors creativity and respects the role that teachers play in making learning exciting and relevant for every child in their classrooms.

With The Creative Curriculum®, our program has developed a complete system that promotes positive outcomes for all children, including English-language learners, children with disabilities, and advanced learners.

Nutrition Policy

The center provides a morning snack, full hot lunch, and afternoon snack to all enrolled children. Meals and snacks are prepared on-site. All meals and snacks are well-balanced and high in nutrition. The foods used in our food service program are closely monitored to exclude excess fat, sugar, artificial colors, and preservatives.

Meals are served family-style with our staff joining the children at their tables. Children are encouraged to serve themselves and to try new foods. Table manners are taught by example, and ample time is allowed for socialization. This helps mealtime to be a happy, enjoyable experience.

Children learn about nutrition as they help set tables and prepare special snacks and treats. Classroom units focus on the study of nutrition and the cultural and ethnic differences in foods.

Menus


The weekly menus are carefully reviewed regularly by the Center Director, staff, and by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s Food & Nutrition Service to ensure nutritional content and variety.
