Daily Curriculum

We will always post the curriculum in the classroom and update it weekly. Our center integrates instruction across developmental domains and early learning disciplines. It supports every aspect of a child’s development: physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and linguistic skills.

The Kids Zone uses CLI Engage & Texas School Ready Curriculum based on the philosophy that children learn best through hands-on activities that address the needs of the whole child.
