School Readiness Curriculum

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 revised Approved School Readiness curriculum list is available below and will continue to grow on an annual basis to include curricula which is submitted, evaluated and approved. The School Readiness curriculum list will be updated annually after each evaluation period (January/February). The annual School Readiness curriculum submission period is open May 1 to June 30.
