The Illinois Early Learning Project provides support, resources, and information for teachers, specialists, administrators, and trainers interested in the implementation of the Project Approach in classrooms for preschool children.
A project is an in-depth investigation of a topic undertaken by a class, a group of children, or an individual child in an early childhood classroom or at home.
The Project Approach…
- is a method of teaching in which an in-depth study of a particular topic is conducted by a child or a group of children.
- is incorporated into the curriculum but does not always constitute the entire curriculum.
- helps young children meet the Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards.
