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.​

Why Emotional Intelligence Is Important for Children

why-emotional-intelligence-is-important-for-children

Emotional intelligence is someone’s ability to express and manage feelings appropriately while respecting the feelings of others. This is a type of intellect that is necessary for everyday life, especially as your child grows older and becomes their own person. When compared to a child who screams or says hurtful things when furious, high EQ children can build good relationships with their feelings and other people through emotional awareness.

A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center, as a preschool in Toledo, Ohio, makes it a priority to assist our students in becoming well-rounded persons. Our activities are designed to encourage children to discover and develop their inner selves as well as their surroundings. Emotional intelligence abilities can be learned by any child. They only require instruction from adults.

Here are the benefits of having high EQ as a child:

  • Forming better relationships with others
  • Higher success during adulthood
  • Improved mental health
  • More engaged in school
  • Become more empathetic

Our child care services would also like to share some tips on how you can raise an emotionally intelligent child at home. Raising your little ones can be tricky but with the right assistance, you won’t have to rely on hope alone.

  • Give a name for your child’s emotions. Help them identify their feelings by teaching them positive and negative emotional words.
  • Show empathy and validate their feelings.
  • Be a good role model and show them how to express their feelings appropriately.
  • Teach coping mechanisms to appease strong urges or emotions.
  • Develop problem-solving skills at home.

Give your child a headstart.
