  • Curriculum Information:

    Pinnacle Curriculum is an early childhood curriculum written by a team of 31 early childhood experts and designed to engage children in developmentally appropriate activities. Pinnacle

    Curriculum is research-based and faith- based. The program provides hands on, center-based activities focused on development of emerging skills in six early childhood age groups. A weekly Bible story lesson and scripture is taught daily.

    Infants and Toddlers: The programs provide activities that stimulate growth and development that can be incorporated into the routines of the day. Encouraging an atmosphere of caring, love, and hugs, Pinnacle Curriculum provides teachers with fun activities to do with little ones all day—even during the “Radical Routines” of eating and changing! Infant and toddler guides follow a weekly format, allowing teachers to choose several activities per day for each child.

    Two-, Three-, and Four-Year-Olds: Pinnacle Curriculum follows a daily activity format that matches the ever-changing needs of each child. With a program specific to the educational and emotional needs, interests, and activity levels of each age group, Pinnacle Curriculum meets learning objectives that will help every child move towards their potential. Pinnacle Curriculum provides for these age groups small and large group time activities, along with center-based activities for as many centers as a classroom can hold.
