Our Curriculum


At Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties, we prepare children for success in school and in life by implementing the leading, research-based early learning curriculum into our daily programs.

Through a partnership with Teaching Strategies (the most widely used Preschool Curriculum in the Country), we empower children to be confident, creative, and caring learners through play-based, hands-on programming. This specialized approach incorporates language, literacy, and mathematics throughout the day.

Using this curriculum, our staff creates effective, developmentally appropriate programs for children with diverse backgrounds, life experiences, languages, and skill levels.

Our learning and development objectives fully align with the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework and state early learning standards.

What Parents are Saying About our Early Learning Programs

My son has been at Discovery Preschool for 5 months. I have found the staff to be caring and engaging even when my little guy was having a hard time adjusting. There is a good balance between instruction and self-guided play. Knowing that my son is safe, well cared for, and being prepared for kindergarten gives me peace of mind.
Discovery Preschool Richland Parent

Greyson has been at the CBC program since he was one. During this time he has grown so much from learning how to communicate with others and trying new things. His mom and I are so pleased with how much he has grown with his social skills. Greyson also has developed his academic skills through learning how to count, identify colors, and much more. We are excited to see how much more he grows in the next year and can't wait for his new adventures. We are so pleased with the teachers he has had along the way each one has made a big impact on his development.

Since moving our son to Pasco Club Discovery we feel at ease and fully confident that he will be cared for mentally, emotionally, and physically. Most importantly, we feel and know without a shadow of a doubt that our son is genuinely cared for and treated as such.

We couldn’t be happier with the staff at Kennewick Preschool. They have the best communication and are always so caring. They update us regularly on how our child is doing developmentally, socially, etc as well as just sharing all of the fun things they are doing.
Kennewick Clubhouse Preschool Parent

This program has been fundamental to our child and myself as a parent. It brings more than child care but awareness of my child's growth. It's professional with their requirements needed and their amazing updates I receive from them. I am comfortably satisfied with the trust that's been grown. My daughter is happy and so I'm I because she loves going to the after school program.
