Using the Maryland Early Learning Standards as a foundation our curriculum, we provide parents and teachers with a common understanding of what children should know and be able to do during their early years.

Experiences at ACP promote the child’s development in the following domains:

  • Language and Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Social Studies
  • Science
  • The Arts
  • Social Foundations
  • Physical Well-Being and Motor Development

Developmentally appropriate practices are implemented to address the individual needs and strengths of every child. Play is an organizing framework for children to investigate and build knowledge.
