You can charge a higher rate because you offer it, but I wouldn't charge a "curriculum fee" per se. In reality, having a curriculum should be expected of you. I use the HighScope Curriculum. It is what our county uses for Pre-K so when kids leave my care they will be familiar with the structure and some of the activities. Just because you choose a certain curriculum, don't feel restricted to ONLY using their products. I buy the textbook that discusses how to approach learning and sample activities, but purchase my own materials and look for similar lesson plans and projects online. I LOVE pinterest; you can get SO inspired from other class projects and learn from other educators. Hope this helps! :-)
