Before you purchase a curriculum to use in your child care or preschool program, take the time to carefully evaluate what is being offered. There are many pre-packaged curriculums out there, but they are not equal. Here are a few questions that you should ask first:

  • Is it affordable?
  • Is it age appropriate?
  • Does it focus on the process rather than a final product?
  • Is it adaptable to for children of different abilities?
  • Are there open ended crafts and activities?
  • Is it based on sound research about child development and education?
  • Is it non-biased?
  • Are there extension and follow up activities?
  • Is it developed by someone with training and expereince in both child care and curriculum design?
  • Does it cover many areas of the curriculum?
