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.​

Encourage Your Child to Eat Breakfast Daily

Encourage Your Child to Eat Breakfast Daily

Breakfast is an excellent way to give your child’s body the energy it needs for preschool in Toledo, Ohio. Taking a breakfast daily is important because they provide sufficient nutrients that help your child stay focused and active throughout the day at school. Thus, they can participate in physical activities, which can help them maintain a healthy weight.

It’s no secret that children tend to feel sleepy and grumpy in the morning. They may say that they’re not hungry or don’t feel like eating so they can skip breakfast. However, if you let them leave for school without their much-needed fuel, they become more irritable in school and have trouble concentrating.

If your child insists that they don’t like to eat or aren’t hungry first thing in the morning, there’s no need to force them. Instead, you can help them pack a breakfast, like a peanut butter sandwich, that they can eat later while they’re on the way to their daycare in Ohio or when their hunger really kicks in.

It always helps to alternate your child’s breakfast daily as much as possible. Better yet, you can ask them what they want to eat and then prepare them together every morning! If they don’t know what they want, you can provide them with all the healthy options you can think of as a headstart.
