You are truly your child's first teacher and play an integral part in his or her development. Our curriculum encourages families and teachers to work together, guiding children's learning in powerful ways. All of our early childhood curriculum programs offer Family Connection Sets which promote the bond between home and school and provide you, the family, with opportunities to extend learning simply during daily routines. All components are in English and Spanish except storybook. Our Family Connection Sets contain the following materials.
