Curriculum

At FUMC Child Development Center, we use the Blueprint for Early Literacy (cli.org/blueprint) curriculum developed by the Children's Literacy Initiative.  It is a literacy-focused curriculum designed for preschool children ages 3, 4, and 5 years old. The program is specifically designed to improve children's early literacy skills and also addresses other key early developmental skills such as:
 
Listening & Speaking
Book Awareness
Print Concepts
Phonological Awareness
Phonics
Comprehension
Fluency
Vocabulary
Writing



In addition to helping children develop emerging reading and writing
skills, Blueprint builds capacity in teachers. As a professional
development organization, Blueprint develops and enhances teacher’s knowledge of
best practices around literacy and infuse expertise and
knowledge throughout the curriculum.
