Chicago, Ill. (June 16, 2014)­—The Early Learning Branch of the Maryland State Department of Education has recommended The InvestiGator Club® Prekindergarten Learning System with STEAM for state endorsement as a comprehensive curriculum for three-, four-, and five-year-olds. The program is the only recommended curriculum fully aligned in every category of the Maryland Framework for 3–5 year-old preschool students.

The InvestiGator Club PreK with STEAM is a culturally rich, fully integrated pre-K curriculum that focuses on STEM, early literacy, the arts and social and emotional development. The program uses engaging stories, charming characters, and children's own curiosity to motivate them to think, solve problems, communicate, and investigate their world.

“This endorsement illustrates the The InvestiGator Club’s appeal as an age-appropriate curriculum for young learners,” said Judith Coffey, CEO of Robert-Leslie Publishing. “The comprehensive materials are aligned to the Common Core and stimulate students critical thinking skills.”

The Department of Education conducted reviews to recommend preschool curricula that demonstrate the best alignment with Maryland’s new pre-kindergarten and kindergarten curricular frameworks, which constitutes the foundation of the Maryland College and Career Ready Standards. An evaluation committee reviewed the curriculum between February and March 2014.

The InvestiGator Club PreK with STEAM was determined to be rich in literature, hands-on experiences, and multicultural experiences. The assessment piece was considered to be comprehensive, with a strong correlation between content and assessment.

The InvestiGator Club PreK with STEAM was recently honored with a Golden Lamp and Distinguished Achievement Award for the 2014 Recognized Valuable Educational Resources (REVERE) Awards.
