On-going Assessment & Curriculum Planning

"The Creative Curriculum® for Infants, Toddlers & Twos supports the development of the whole child with high-quality, comprehensive resources for intentionally teaching and caring for our youngest learners during these most critical and formative years of development.

Daily routines and meaningful learning experiences in mathematics, language and literacy, cognitive and physical development, science and technology, the arts, social studies, English-language acquisition, and social-emotional learning shape today’s children as tomorrow’s leaders."  ~Teaching Strategies~


"Partners for a Healthy Baby curriculum is a research-based parenting curriculum developed by a multidisciplinary FSU faculty team with expertise in obstetric medicine, early childhood development, psychology, infant mental health, social work, and early intervention. Using the latest research and clinical guidelines from their respective disciplines, the faculty team compiled evidence-based strategies for home visitors to use when addressing issues facing expectant and new families.

The research-based content in the Partners curriculum addresses a wide range of topics associated with the goals of most home visiting programs including: improved prenatal health; healthy birth outcomes; bonding and attachment; positive parenting; enhanced child health and development; infant mental health; economic self-sufficiency; and family stability. Well-trained home visitors choose topics in the curriculum that align with family needs and their program outcomes.

The FSU Partners for a Healthy Baby curriculum is widely used in many evidence-based home visiting programs including Early Head Start, Healthy Families, Healthy Start, and other MIECHV home visiting models with promising practices that are building their evidence base." ~Florida State University~
