Bright Starts in Early Childhood Programs

Starting in the 2023-2024 school year, all New York City public school early childhood programs will adopt and implement “The Creative Curriculum” — a nationally used, research-based program. Alongside this curriculum, early childhood programs will use “Teaching Strategies GOLD,” an authentic child assessment system and “Ages & Stages,” a developmental screener to inform the planning of rich learning experiences tailored to each child's strengths, interests, and needs. Program staff will receive intensive professional learning in the spring and summer in preparation for implementation in the fall ensuring that all children are able to enter kindergarten with the literacy and math skills needed for academic success.
