Children Explore Their World: Curriculum for Threes
What is CEW?
Children Explore Their World (CEW) is an early childhood curriculum for three-year-olds, currently in the first year of implementation, having been piloted in preschool classrooms throughout Maryland during the 2021-2022 school year. 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.
