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.​

How to Select a Preschool for Your Child

How to Select a Preschool for Your Child

The selection process can be honestly overwhelming. There’s a myriad of aspects you must take into consideration to make sure your child will have a promising educational and fun experience. Never settle for mediocrity. Your careful planning and evaluation are critical in the selection process. Remember, it is your child’s early development stage. This is where they develop a headstart to a brighter future.

Here’s a checklist of what you should consider when choosing the right preschool for your child.

  • Manageable cost and distance.
    Narrow down your options by considering the nitty-gritty first, such as the location and cost. Say, you’re searching for an economical yet high-quality Preschool in Toledo, Ohio, and nearby areas, you have to know your child’s needs and coordinate them with your resources and the available options.
  • Licensed instructors.
    The staff must be certified, dedicated, and trustworthy. If they possess a positive attitude and a love for kids, even better. After all, you’ll be entrusting your child’s growth and learning in their hands.
  • Reputable organization.
    Assess the school’s foundation and services, and see if it meets licensing standards. A respected daycare in Ohio that offers exceptional quality education is always what’s best for your child.
  • Right curriculum.
    A well-rounded curriculum has three distinct requirements: wealthy content, hands-on learning, and good developmental activities. It guarantees a holistic learning experience for all its students.
  • Great environment.
    The school’s facilities should be specifically tailored for learning and exploration. This includes safe outdoors, a bright, lively atmosphere, and well-designed classrooms to ensure safe and excellent child care.
