What is CEW?

Children Explore Their World (CEW) is an early childhood curriculum for three-year-olds. CEW is based on principles of project-based inquiry and driven by evidence-based practices that build teacher capacity and support successful implementation.

CEW consists of eight interdisciplinary, content-rich projects that build upon children's knowledge and increase in complexity. 

CEW was developed by the Center for Early Childhood Education and Intervention (CECEI) with funding from the Maryland State Department of Education, Division of Early Childhood.
