New Brunswick Curriculum Framework

New Brunswick Curriculum Framework for Early Learning and Child Care - EnglishThe New Brunswick Curriculum Framework symbol
In partnership with the Government of New Brunswick, research and development of a curriculum framework, curriculum support documents, and a Program of Professional Learning for licensed Early Learning and Child Care sites.

The New Brunswick Curriculum Framework is about living the good life with children.  It is strongly rooted in early childhood internationally and it links New Brunswick with Scandinavia, New Zealand, and Reggio Emilia.  It is both local and global.  It demonstrates sensitivity about children and acknowledges that these proposed changes present a challenge.  That is unusual.  It is not prescriptive.  It doesn't tell you what to do.  It asks questions and invites your responses.  I could read about the various child care centres across the province and as an outsider to New Brunswick, it gave me an image of life with children in New Brunswick.  It is promising and positive.  (Carol Ann Wien, 2008)
