Daycare Curriculum

Iowa Early Learning Standards 

Community Christian Daycare and Preschool curriculum is based on the Iowa Early Learning Standards developed by the Iowa Department of Education based on theory and best practice.


These standards identify the knowledge, skills, motivation, and attitudes needed by students that lead to success as they enter school and as adults.

The seven developmental areas are:

physical well-being and motor development

approaches toward learning

social and emotional development

communication, language, and literacy

mathematics and science

creative arts

social studies


Community Christian Daycare and Preschool work closely together developing and designing activities that support these identified learning goals. All of the classrooms follow a yearly continuum that guides students through the standards as well as the appropriate ages and stages for each age group.


Learning Centers

Children learn a great deal through learning centers. Learning centers are developmentally appropriate areas that allow children to use their imagination, social skills and gain pre-writing, reading, and math skills. Children choose the center in which they would like to participate. They are also encouraged to try new areas.  


Dramatic Play Center

Children act out social behaviors such as interacting as a family.  Teachers may choose to change this center to match the theme.

This center is comprised of quiet activities, such as books.


This center gives children a chance to explore God’s world.

Creative Art
