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.​

Make Reading a Healthy Habit In Your Child

Make Reading a Healthy Habit In Your Child

Did you know that your tiny tot can develop reading habits at home even before they learn to read or attend child care?

A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center is here to share a few fantastic tips on giving your child a solid headstart at home. Take a look:

  • Make it a daily habit
    From the day you bring home your little bundle of joy from the hospital, you can start raising a reader. You do this by reading to them often. They may not understand you, but the sound of their parent’s voices is enough to soothe them and make your baby look forward to reading in the future.
  • Show your child
    Your child will learn from observing you. While we do have reading activities at our Preschool in Toledo, Ohio, nothing beats the examples parents set for their mini-me’s.
  • Give them choices
    Reading is even more fun and special for youngsters if you let them pick. At our daycare in Ohio teachers often let the students take turns on which books will be read for story-time that day.

If you’re concerned about finding the books that fit your child’s reading level, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’re happy to give you a few suggestions. Dial 419-244-5348 to get in touch.
