CECEI Developing and Implementing New Children Explore Their World Curriculum, Expanding Implementation of Children Study Their World

Children Gardening

The Center for Early Childhood Education and Intervention (CECEI), Dr. Christy Tirrell-Corbin, Principal Investigator and Project Director, is implementing a multi-phased project, which brings standards-driven, project-based learning to preschool (defined as those who are in three and four-year-old classrooms) children throughout the State of Maryland. This work is funded by the Maryland State Department of Education, Division of Early Childhood. The multi-phased project will have the dual focus of: 

(1) expanding the implementation of Children Study Their World: A Curriculum for Four-Year-Old Children (CSW), and 

(2) developing and implementing Children Explore Their World: A Curriculum for Three-Year-Old Children (CEW). 

The overarching goal of the project is to utilize evidence in the research literature to design and implement standards-driven, project-based learning experiences, grounded in Maryland’s Early Learning Standards and Early Learning Assessment, for three and four-year-old children throughout the state.
