STREAMin³ is a comprehensive curriculum model for birth to five that seamlessly blends a focus on academic and social-emotional learning.
Researchers at the Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL), in collaboration with Elevate Early Education (E3), and piloted at The New E3 School, designed an innovative, engaging and interaction-based curriculum model using the latest developmental and early education research. The STREAM: Integrated, Intentional, Interactions (STREAMin³) Curriculum focuses on five core skills that form the building blocks for later learning and six STREAM skills to prepare children for success in kindergarten and beyond. The model includes a variety of activities and routines, coaching, assessments and professional development for teachers.

The Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning and its partners have created a teaching approach that combines social smarts with academic ones.
