Connecticut's Preschool Curriculum Framework and Benchmarks for Children in Preschool Programs.
Connecticut State Board of Education, Hartford.
Incorporating information and perspectives from national and state preschool education standards and other resources, this document presents the guiding principles, program goals, content standards and performance standards for domains of development for preschool children in Connecticut. The four domains are: (1) personal and social development; (2) physical development; (3) cognitive development; and (4) creative expression/aesthetic development. Among the principles guiding the development of this document are the recognition that early learning and development are multidimensional, that young children are capable and competent, that developmental rates vary among individuals, and that knowledge of child growth and development and consistent expectation are essential to maximizing educational experiences for children and to developing and implementing programs. Each developmental domain section delineates program goals to be achieved by completion of preschool, lists program content standards, and examines performance standards for each of the content standards.
