THE EARLY DEVELOPMENT OF GLOBAL EDUCATION CURRICULUM SUPPLEMENT
The EDGE Curriculum Supplement is a tool used by EDGE Accredited Schools for children between the ages of 2 and 5. It is a research and science based supplement that includes, Sunshine State Standards, VPK Standards and 7 EDGE Elements (the 7 EDGE Elements are topics based on crucial environmental issues plaguing our planet).
The EDGE Curriculum Supplement can be used with any other main stream preschool curriculum and integrated into classroom activities. The EDGE asks that each school make a commitment to reinforcing eco-friendly habits. This reinforcement includes a commitment from teachers and parents where they must know the importance of environmental education as it is taught in the class and at home.
