FROG STREET TK CURRICULUM ENSURES TEACHERS AND CHILDREN THRIVE IN THE CLASSROOM
Key learning domains are woven into every aspect of Frog Street’s curriculum for TK, and weekly instructional plans are easy to follow and implement with fidelity. Integrated STEAM projects promote problem-solving and beginning coding skills. Interactive digital programs support virtual learning and families at home. An exclusive partnership with the Conscious Discipline® program provides the tools for a strong social-emotional foundation.
Our team of early education experts at Frog Street completed a rigorous and thorough review of several different state standards when creating the learning activities used in the California TK: Golden Journeys curriculum. Overlapping standards were analyzed from these documents and used to create a comprehensive list of Frog Street Standards. We are confident that the standards referenced in the curriculum will adequately cover the new TK standards that will be released soon. In addition, the curriculum standards correlate to the DRDP, ensuring all of California’s Early Learners are on track for Kindergarten.

Owner, Child Care Program
"Frog Street provides the whole foundation of your classroom and touches each subject and even helps with adaptations for children with learning disabilities. I also love that it lays out each week so at the end of every week I am able to set up my classroom for the following week!!!!"
Teacher, Head Start
"As a Program Director I consider the cost and return we get from the Frog Street curriculum and I think it's definitely an investment worth making in your program. The materials are high quality and hold up well in the classroom and the teachers and children both think it's fun and engaging. As a result it helps reduce teacher burnout and turnover. Finally, our student outcomes and scores have risen as a result of moving to Frog Street."
Program Officer, Head Start Programs
"It’s the best curriculum for pre-K!"
