Child Assessment

To assess children’s development and growth, we use the creative curriculum “GOLD” Assessment. Assessment is an integral part of the program and guides the work we do with each child. Each lead teacher and much of the support staff have been trained and participate in ongoing training in the use and implementation of the Creative Curriculum. The purposes of assessment are 1) to identify the needs, interests, skills and abilities of the children enrolled. 2) to compare the developmental progress of the child to the Developmental Continuum ( Creative Curriculum) 3) to use the information gathered to share with the parents and to inform the curriculum and preparation of the learning environment.

As much as possible assessment information is gathered in a naturalistic (classroom) environment and on demand testing is reserved for limited usage. The assessment tool utilized is the Creative Curriculum Developmental Continuum(which assures continuity between classroom curriculum and assessment). Our Assessment process is multifaceted and includes: the individual Child Profile (checklist) and Child Progress and Planning Report, individual portfolio notebooks and journals hold sample work, photos and observations of each child; anecdotal records and other teacher created and Creative Curriculum assessment forms. The portfolios and journals are readily available in the classrooms for parents to view at any time. Anecdotal records, teacher notes and the Developmental Continuum forms are secured to protect the privacy of the family. These records are only available to the Teacher, Assistant Teacher, Director and parents. All assessment information is shared and discussed with parents during conferences in January and May when the family is offered the opportunity to also contribute comments and observations and individualized goals are established. Any parent interested in seeing copies of the Developmental continuum and Child Progress and Planning Report may do so by requesting a copy from the Director. If there are concerns about the form or technique used for Child Assessment please contact the Director. In the event of Special Needs Issues, modifications to the assessment techniques may be implemented in order to best meet the needs of the individual child.​

Emphasizing The Importance of Learning

Learning is one of, if not the most important aspect of any child’s development and upbringing. It allows the child to have a better understanding of many concepts that dictate life in the world. Moreover, learning allows the child to grow and acquire new knowledge and skills that he or she may require later in life. He or she may need those same skills to apply for jobs, or to accomplish certain tasks. Suffice to say, great child care and a good learning experience are imperative for any child’s growth.

Giving your child a head start in this aspect could be very beneficial to his or her future life. Providing them with the best learning environment and allowing them to discover hidden talents and acquire new skills at a young age will help them get ahead in life. Letting them inside premiere educational institutions for their age allows them to do all that while receiving the best in care.

One of those premiere institutions is A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center, a preschool in Toledo, Ohio. We know that children have talents and developmental needs that are unique and special to each one of them. That is why we aim to help our students meet Ohio’s Learning and Development Standards for their age or grade using various methods in terms of classroom instruction, small-group projects, and after-school enrichment.
