  • Early Childhood Program Purpose & Objective

    The Council Bluffs Community School District aspires to provide all of our youngest students with high quality early childhood experiences.  Our programs focus on the social, emotional, cognitive, language, physical and academic skills of the whole child, through positive, authentic and intentional instruction that encourages natural curiosity and drive.

    Our curriculum is aligned with the Iowa Early Learning Standards, and is provided through research-based instructional practices to meet each child’s individual needs.  Our classrooms are safe, nurturing environments that meet the needs of all students, and are committed to provide opportunities for our youngest students to observe, interact, and reflect on their learning across all developmental domains.

    To accomplish this, our Early Childhood programs provide hands-on, interactive learning opportunities for young bodies and minds to explore, discover, invent and engage in their environments, both indoors and outdoors.  We produce students who become critical thinkers, effective communicators, flexible problem solvers, interactive collaborators, inspired creators, and self-motivated learners.
