This research based pre-K program integrates intentional instruction across developmental domains and early learning disciplines. Frog Street Pre-K is written by senior author and acclaimed early education expert, Dr. Pam Schiller, Ph.D., and includes contributions from, Dr. Alma Flor Ada, Dr. F. Isabel Campoy, Brian Mowry, Dr. Becky Bailey and many other early childhood experts. The curriculum is designed to nurture the four key developmental domains: language, cognitive, social/emotional, and physical. The instructional strategies are designed to make every step of the learning process cohesive. Based on modern research, the program is uniquely built to nurture brain development in young learners by integrating thematic, intentional activities in all the developmental domains.
