From the Paper:

"In his article, "Early Childhood Education Programs Can Make a Difference in Academic, Economic, and Social Arenas," Fred C. Lunenburg says that "Every educator knows that a valid curriculum model provides the theoretical framework needed to operate an effective early childhood education program and to provide opportunities for children to be ready to learn" (Lunenburg 1). While individual teaching styles vary, of course, educators might consider six widely known early childhood curriculum models: Bank Street's Developmental-Interaction approach, Teaching Strategies' Creative Curriculum, the High/Scope Curriculum, the Kamii DeVries constructivist approach, the Montessori method, and the Direct Instruction Model (Lununburg 2). The history, methods and classroom organization of the High/Scope and Montessori approaches to education are discussed below."
