Early Childhood Curriculum

The Indiana District Early Childhood Cabinet Helping Early Childhood Centers

  • In 2013, work was completed on an Early Childhood Preschool Curriculum . It was designed to help all our early childhood centers maintain the same academic and faith based standards and goals.
  • In 2014, the Indiana District also published Preschool and Infant Assessments to complement the Early Childhood Preschool Curriculum.
  • In 2016, the Indiana District completed a curriculum for 2-year olds

We encourage you to use any of these resources! If you need additional help or have questions, contact our office.
