MEET THE founder + lead author:
As an expert in early childhood education and consulting, I became acutely aware of
the challenges educators face when trying to implement multiple instructional tools into their environment. I saw firsthand the need to meet early childhood learning standards, address social and emotional competencies, infuse technology, enhance literacy and language, and build educators’ capacity as they impact the vital components in early development and future learning. Hence the birth of Curious Elephant, a developmentally appropriate and affordable early childhood educational curriculum for both children
Curious Elephant is a dynamic 44-week curriculum that focuses on wholistic, brain-based STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, Math) learning in and out of the classroom.
The curriculum is designed for intentional implementation - three days a week, with supporting STREAM activities the remaining two days. Curious Elephant offers the flexibility of moving from one theme to another via interchangeable lesson plans while still maintaining a rigorous play-based environment.
If high-quality early education practices are your aim, this easy to implement curriculum is for you. Our lesson plans are inclusive! We address diversity, advocate for
social-emotional health, and incorporate special needs modifications.
