School Readiness Curriculum Approval

Legislation requires the Office of Early Learning to adopt a list of approved curricula that meet the School Readiness Program performance standards and to establish a process for reviewing and approving a provider's curriculum to assess whether it meets the standards. The 2014-2015 list of curricula approved for use in school readiness programs is available below and will expire June 30, 2020. The 2019 School Readiness curriculum review application period is closed. The 2020 School Readiness curriculum review application period will be open from May 1 to June 30.

Questions about the school readiness curriculum approval process may be sent to Gregory.Allerellie@oel.myflorida.com.
