DALLAS, Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Voyager Sopris Learning, a provider of a comprehensive suite of evidence-based interventions, assessments, and professional services, announced today its receipt of Mississippi Department of Education's approval of the We Can Early Learning Curriculum for the 2014 Prekindergarten Textbook Adoption list.

Developed by Vicki Gibson, Ph.D., We Can is a proven preK and early learning solution that prepares all children, ages 3 to 5, for academic success. The robust, multidisciplinary curriculum provides a clear road map for early learning success—featuring easy-to-implement lesson plans, a wide range of innovative and technology-enhanced learning tools, embedded differentiation, and a comprehensive classroom-management system.

We Can aligns with the 11 domains of the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework—thereby, fully integrating key areas of learning and providing a solid foundation for kindergarten success.

"We are committed to helping students prepare for the rigors of the Common Core State Standards which is why the We Can program was built to address foundational skills and standards for kindergarten," said George Logue, president of Voyager Sopris Learning.

We Can has a history of success as studies revealed a dramatic decrease in special education referrals, as well as a narrowing of the achievement gap between schools most and least impacted by poverty for both language arts (from 24% to 4%) and math (from 28% to 9%).
