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.​

Laying Down the Foundations of Learning

For parents, their children’s education and ability to learn are important things they want to nurture. But, how do you even start? When you are having a difficult time, don’t worry. We are here to help you out. As a preschool in Toledo, Ohio, we at A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center provide parents with valuable services and information that they can use for their children. Today, we will discussing the different things that you can do to build the foundations of learning within your child.

One of the best things that you can do to encourage learning in your child is to make it as fun as possible. Playing games that promote learning can accelerate a child’s ability to learn by making it interesting and motivational for them to do. There are various games that you can choose to do such as word games and role playing. Another thing that you can do with your child is reading to them. If you are reading to them in a different language, it can help them learn the second language much better and faster. Our child care services also do this for our students.

When you are in need of a daycare in Ohio, don’t hesitate to contact us. We are happy to assist you.
