    The Cherry Creek Early Childhood Program is an inclusive program for children ages 3 to 5 years old.  This means we include children with special needs in all our classrooms. Through the diversity of age, ability, and culture, we believe children learn about the varied people in our society. We value and welcome this diversity in our classrooms.

    Our program focuses on the development of the whole child through active exploration and child-initiated choices. Children learn best in a social environment in cooperation with children and adults. For this reason, our first focus is on the development of competent social skills and rich language. In this social environment, we incorporate cognitive experiences that are appropriate to the ages and development of young children.

    We base our program on The Creative Curriculum, which supports active learning, development of cognitive skills, literacy, language, math, science, and creative expression. These experiences provide a solid foundation for future academic skills.​
