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.​

Help Your Child to Make Friends in Preschool

Help Your Child to Make Friends in Preschool

When you enroll your child in a daycare in Ohio, you must teach them how to make friends with other children so they won’t feel left out and enjoy life outside their home. You can start by teaching them how to greet and introduce themselves as they extend their hand for a handshake.

For your child to practice introducing themselves, try to role-play with them. Tell them to pretend that you’re their classmate whom they don’t know and practice what words they could say. By role-playing, you’re already giving your child a headstart before they start preschool in Toledo, Ohio.

As a center for child care, we believe that children who have established friendships with their peers help them look forward to coming to school and learning. It’s helpful if parents can encourage their little ones to mingle with others. That way, their children can improve their communication skills and confidence as they grow.

Every child needs to be in a positive environment that can help them with their learning and development. If you are looking for a reliable daycare center that can offer such, you can contact A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center.
