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.​

Parenting: Tips to Raise Honest Children

parenting-tips-to-raise-honest-children

Honesty in children gives them a headstart in life. Truthfulness not only provides them a competitive edge in the job market when they grow up but also helps them build healthy relationships with others.

As such, at our preschool in Toledo, Ohio, we develop critical values among our students, including honesty. For parents, here are some tips you can inculcate this behavior at home.

  • Make It a Rule
    Establish a clear household rule ? to tell the truth ? and ensure everyone adheres to it. Educate your kids about the damages of lying.
  • Be the Role Model
    If you need time to rest, and your kids annoy you, be honest about it. Avoid making excuses and, instead, tell your kids about why you need a me-time and make sure they get it.
  • Identify the Root
    Children may lie for many reasons. But often, they hide the truth to brag and avoid negative consequences or responsibilities. As soon as you’ve figured out what causes lying, you can prepare a better response plan to reinforce honesty.
  • Give a Consequence
    Outline a fair consequence every time your child lies. You can remove some privileges or apply restitution to instill the value of honesty.

THE TAKEAWAY
Child care involves teaching socially acceptable values to your kids, such as honesty because being honest also increases genuine happiness in life.

Let your kids enjoy childhood while also molding their personality and behavior. Our daycare in Ohio develops academic skills and ethics to nurture your child’s holistic growth. For details, reach out to A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center at your convenience.
