Teaching Strategies GOLD®
At Yellow Brick Road, we use Teaching Strategies GOLD®. This is a nationally accepted curriculum that focuses on development for children from birth to six years old. Teaching Strategies GOLD, also known as TSG or GOLD, is the preferred curriculum for the National Association of Education for Young Children. With this curriculum, teachers are able to create a plan based on children’s interests.
TSG follows the development of each child individually, as well as the classroom as a whole. This allows your child to get the individual attention they need while developing and learning at a good pace. This curriculum also gives teachers guidance without mandating activities or making teachers follow a strict schedule. Teachers can plan activities based on the group’s interests.
Another benefit of the TSG curriculum is that it is a unique system that assesses your child from birth through kindergarten. This allows teachers to observe children in the context of everyday experiences so they understand what they know and can do. Teachers then can create new lessons that can improve these skills and teach new skills. With the TSG curriculum, your child will develop a variety of new skills and build a foundation that will help them throughout their later school years.
