PACE Early Childhood Education (ECE) recognizes the value of active learning experiences and developmentally appropriate activities to help children achieve their full potential. The design of PACE's Education Service Area is based on the Head Start Outcomes Early Learning Framework - Ages Birth to Five. The Education Service Area's organizational structure supports a system that executes a high quality, educational program that ensures School Readiness and success.
PACE ECE utilizes The Creative Curriculum, an award-winning research-based curriculum featuring exploration and discovery as a way of learning, enabling children to develop confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills. The Creative Curriculum is based on 38 objectives for development and learning. These objectives are fully aligned with the Head Start Outcomes Early Learning Framework – Ages Birth to Five and state early learning standards, and integrated into each and every one of the comprehensive collection of resources that makes up the curriculum. In addition, the curriculum offers daily opportunities to individualize instruction by helping teachers meet the needs of every learner, with a particular focus on English language development.
