The CubbyCase Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on Learning & Developmental benchmarks and concepts inspired by: 

  • Dual Capacity-Building Framework for Family–School Partnerships
    by Karen Mapp, Harvard Graduate School of Education

  • 4C’s Rubrics for 21st Century Skills by Edleader21

  • Social and Emotional Learning, and Approaches to Play and Learning Standards from Massachusetts (2015)

  • Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP) from California (2015)

  • Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Curriculum Framework (2016)

For every educational product in your CubbyCase, we create a corresponding curriculum card that provides an easy way for parents to engage with the children.
