Staff Training

We offer training to support the Complementary Curriculum Approach including the Four Intentions, Prepared Environment, Project Approach and Emergent Curriculum, Teaching for Equity, and more. This can be a one-time visit to your program or a series of experiences for your entire staff. This is a great way for your teachers to cultivate equitable classroom practices and earn professional development hours.

Director Training

Need support at the administrative level? We are more than happy to offer Complementary Curriculum Approach training for school leadership on topics such as leading with an equity lens, supportive supervision, hiring and retaining staff, and motivating teachers.

Classroom Environmental Design

A large part of Complementary Curriculum Approach hinges on the design of the classroom. We support the development of your Prepared Environment with workshops on accessible and equitable classroom set up, storage of materials, provisioning classroom materials, and outdoor playground design.

Transform Your Practice Through Intentional Teaching

The Complementary Curriculum Approach invites teachers to support children’s play, cultivate classroom environments with rich, interesting learning experiences at the core, and commit to equitable classroom practices.

The Complementary Curriculum Approach identifies four strategic and powerful teaching intentions that supports a child's right to an educational experience rooted in an anti-bias stance. These intentions will invigorate and strengthen teacher practices and pave the way for meaningful, joyful engagement for children and the adults who work with them.
