What is African Centered Curriculum?

African Centered Curriculum is Afrocentric Ideology and Cultured relevancy.

• Focuses on the development of the child

• Employs teaching methods using African cultural principles, processes, laws, and experiences

• Acknowledges that African American children are highly visual, audible, and fashion-oriented and exposed to a high degree of stimuli at an early age, including expressiveness, dance, and rhythm

*Behavior *academic excellence *build relationship*Health *cultured competence

ShaModd and Me Daycare, LLC  have a sound curriculum that is sound and includes performance objectives in language art, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, and physical education. With an emphasis on hands-on learning, ShaModd and Me children are taught creatively through an Afrocentric Ideology approach using trips, songs, games, books, videos, and computer technology. We have an open space strategically divided into multi-age fashion to help develop and grow in a caring environment.


Our goal is to ignite within our children the deep understanding that:

  • Each has a profound purpose in life that includes the sustaining and improvement, the capacity and expectation to enact positive social change
  • Each must work with a sense of collectivism and humility, putting positive goals and outcomes at the forefront of all actions and decisions
  • Each must engage in practices, which honor the interdependence of humans, plants, animals, and natural elements
  • ​Each must study and practice traditional scientific methods and modalities (i.e. farming, herbalism, natural healing) and seek to restore them within our modern society
  • Each must rely on critical thinking, analysis, problem-solving and good character to make sound decisions, which benefit the collective in addition to self
  • Each has an obligation to learn, honor, and promote the engagement of beneficial traditional practices that relate to his or her ancestry
  • Each must work to create, build and sustain businesses, institutions, and programs that benefit their communities, both small and broad
  • In achieving these goals, we believe that we are helping to guide a new generation of world citizens whose confidence, sense of human collectivism and environmental awareness will inform their decisions as they seek to improve the condition of the world.
