Overview & Testimonial
Early childhood education states that you should provide children with a wealth of knowledge to help them excel in their K-12 schooling. Pinnacle® is a research-based early childhood curriculum, designed with both teachers and students in mind. Based on the works of Piaget, Gardner,
and Erikson, Pinnacle® provides early childhood educators with lessons that engage children in developmentally appropriate activities. Pinnacle® is published with more than just lesson plans and worksheets.
The curriculum provides adaptations for disabilities, enrichments, and long-range goals linked to Michigan Academic Standards, including kindergarten of course! Developmentally appropriate childcare center curriculum programs are offered for Infants, Toddlers, Two’s, Three’s, Four’s, and School-Age children.
I have two children. My daughter is a traditional learner who does well in a classroom and maintains straight A's, while my son is more of a hands-on learner. He works better in a Montessori environment. I always wondered why there was not a curriculum that was in the middle of these two styles. While I was looking for a new style of preschool I found a few interesting ones but they were not offered in the area I lived. Then I found Pinnacle and it truly offers the best of both worlds! The teachers are trained to observe and adapt curriculum to fit the needs of your child. The teacher is given lots of options for each domain; group work, language, creative arts, sciences, dramatic play, math, blocks, music, outdoor so right away so they are not struggling to create a new way to address the learning style of your child!
