The STREAMin3 curriculum model was developed by our team at the Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL) at UVA in partnership with and funding from E3: Elevate Early Education, as well as through initial implementation within The New E3 School with their teachers and leaders. Thanks to the Virginia Department of Education’s (VDOE) commitment to providing access to high-quality early childhood education, STREAMin3 is now offered as a low-to-no cost curriculum option.
