Mission & Teaching Strategy

Our mission at First Beginnings Child Development Center is to provide children and their families with a secure, enriched environment to foster individual development, self-esteem, creativity and spiritual growth. We do this by implementing Creative Curriculum, a forward-thinking, comprehensive, research-based and research-proven curriculum that helps teachers to be their most effective, while still honoring their creativity. Creative Curriculum is focused in four areas of study: mathematics, language and literacy, social-emotional and physical.

At First Beginnings, we also put into work the teaching strategies GOLD assessment program through the Louisiana Department of Education for evaluating and documenting our student’s progress. For more information on the assessment program, visit the Louisiana Department of Education website.
