The Creative Curriculum® is research-based and supports the development of the whole child.
Here at SELA, our program offers Spanish, Chinese (Mandarin), as well as ASL. There are positive impacts of offering multiple languages at an early age where children most benefit and can retain the language.
IMIL is an active learning curriculum enhancement that augments what early learning settings already do to promote physical activity and healthier nutrition.
SELA understands and embraces diversity—cultural, linguistic, and ability diversity (CLAD).
Developmentally appropriate use of technology can help young children grow and learn, especially when families and early educators play an active role.
