The American Creativity Academy Nursery is a private Nursery that delivers a standards-based American curriculum within an environment in which Islamic values are respected and practiced. The Nursery dedicated to preparing students for lifelong learning.
The above two sentences represent the mission of ACA Nursery; the mission that drives the school to a unique blend of American standards-based education with Islamic values. What exactly is standards-based curriculum? And why is it so important?
A curriculum that is “standards-based” indicates specific criteria that defines what students are expected to learn and be able to perform, and usually includes both content standards and performance standards. A standards-based curriculum focuses on the students and asks;
  • What standards will students learn?
  • How can students apply what they are learning?
  • How will students show what they learned?
  • What help do students need to achieve the standards?
  • How well did each of the students do?
All these questions focus on the students and their learning, compared to the traditional curriculum where the focus is the teacher.
At ACA Nursery, the curriculum is always reviewed and revised. Each academic year, one subject area is subject to intense evaluation. Groups of specialized teachers and administrators work on updating the current curriculum in the selected subject, as well as the associated resources. By the end of the school year, there will be an updated curriculum for the particular subject. The other subjects are also under general review, to assess the need for development. By the end of each academic year, the curriculum can be modified using the information gathered.
The curriculum at ACA Nursery is alive, developing and in continuous change. There is no time where we will have a perfect curriculum. By initiating reviews, the school will not wait for an external change to make modifications to the curriculum; on the contrary, the Nursery updates the curriculum by looking at the changes around the world and technology.
ACA Nursery have also put forward its strategic plan for education and together with the teachers, we look forward to an ongoing process of reviewing, updating and developing our curriculum
