Our curriculum is based on the Arizona Department of Education guidelines. These standards reflect the growing consensus among early childhood professionals that greater emphasis be placed on a young child’s conceptual learning, especially acquisition of language and literacy. 

Toddler Curriculum
The Creative Curriculum for toddlers is based on early education theories and the latest brain research, which underscores the importance of the early years. Magic Keys to Learning CDC is committed to providing a developmentally appropriate environment that stimulates your child’s brain growth. Our loving and nurturing staff is committed to the responsive care of your child. We know from research and observation that the first major way children learn is through movement, through touch, and through experience. A child who can sign at this stage of their life will experience less frustration for him/ herself and those around them.
 
Daily Routines include: hellos and goodbyes, diapering and toileting, eating, and naptime. Daily Activities include: sign language, playing with toys, dabbling in art, imitating and pretending, enjoying stories and books, tasting and preparing food, exploring sand and water, having fun with music, and going outdoors. These experiences will enhance sensory motor skills and eye-hand coordination.
