OIP utilizes Creative Curriculum, which uses appropriate practices, incorporating specially planned, structured interventions and procedures designed to address the diverse needs of children. It reflects current research on children’s developed needs and interests. The curriculum centers on the content areas of language arts, science, mathematics, social studies, physical education, health and nutrition, and fine arts. It is segmented into age groups, with goals and objectives designed to correlate with the child’s developmental level (i.e. age 3/4 or 5/6) and Ohio’s Early Learning Content Standards. Handwriting Without Tears is the designated prewriting curriculum that addresses developmentally appropriate prewriting activities. In preschool, these areas are integrated into the classroom activities, and they center on children’s interests and interactions while they are engaged in play.
