Our Goal

The North American Division Early Childhood Developmental Standards outline benchmarks and skills that young children acquire during the birth-to-five-year period. These standards were developed through a Seventh-day Adventist world view across the birth-12 curricula with integration of research-based national and provincial/state standards. They are designed to provide direction in program planning and equipping so that teachers deliver instruction emphasizing Seventh-day Adventist goals, concepts, and values in a developmentally appropriate manner. Additionally, they support the development and well-being of the young child and enhance learning in five domains. Each domain contains standards with benchmarks and Example.
