Marysville Cooperative Preschool
MCP provides a child-led, developmentally appropriate, emergent curriculum in a learning-rich environment for toddlers and preschoolers ages 2 to 5 years. Emergent curriculum is a way of planning curriculum based on the student’s interest and passions as well as the teacher’s. To plan an emergent curriculum requires observation, documentation, creative brainstorming, flexibility and patience. Rather than starting with a lesson plan which requires a “hook” to get the children interested, emergent curriculum starts with the children’s interests. This does not mean that the teacher does not have a curriculum plan, simply that the teacher’s plan is flexible enough to allow for new directions based on student interests and experiences. This process requires a great deal of adaptation and creativity on the part of the teacher.
