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.​

Reasons Why Pets are Great for Kids

reasons-why-pets-are-great-for-kids

Pets are beloved by kids, and for good reason. Both large and little creatures may teach, amuse, and provide a particular form of friendship to you and your kids. Pets, like any other member of the family, may significantly influence a child’s development. A positive relationship with a pet can help children, especially in childcare programs, with areas like social-emotional and motor skills.

Pets are part of many children’s lives. A child who learns to care for an animal, and treat it kindly and patiently, may get invaluable training in learning to treat people the same way. As a provider of childcare in Toledo, Ohio, we believe that pets are considered a family and can help with your child’s development. Here are some of the benefits of having a pet:

  • They strengthen family bonds.
    Families bond and enjoy great shared experiences when they play with their pets together.
  • They teach life lessons.
    Children learn about issues like birth, health, and aging from their pets, who are living animals.
  • They help kids to learn accountability.
    Pets rely on us for a lot of things, including feeding, cleaning, and walking them. Some of these responsibilities can be taken on by kids, who will gain responsibility-related skills.
  • They help kids respect other living things.
    Pets are living creatures that kids can learn to appreciate and care for, although they appear and behave differently from humans.

A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center is a premier preschool in Ohio. We build a strong foundation to educate children by creating a warm, welcoming environment for them.
