Small-Group Projects

Our program provides large group, small group and individual activities with a mixture of teacher directed and child chosen activities. Instruction is based on children’s individual needs, interests, strengths and learning styles. Topics of study are theme based and based on the interests of the children as well. Our developmental appropriate activities and materials help the students make sense of the world around them through a playful, challenging and rewarding program.


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.​

Children Need Good Sleep to Enjoy and Thrive in School

Children Need Good Sleep to Enjoy and Thrive in School

Children need to get sufficient amount of sleep before they go to their daycare in Ohio. Otherwise, it will be hard for them to focus on daycare programs. If they feel sluggish, they may not have the enthusiasm to participate in any activities because they are likely to fall asleep. Worse, they may get irritable and start picking fights with their peers.

How do you ascertain that your child gets a decent amount of sleep daily? Set a bedtime schedule and build a night routine for them. Sometimes, children still like to play games or watch TV at night. However, if you follow a parent-child routine—like drinking milk together and reading bedtime stories during a specific hour—they are likely to join you in that routine and then sleep early.

A night of good sleep is an excellent headstart for children who are entering preschool in Toledo, Ohio. Aside from giving them the much-needed energy to enjoy and thrive in class, it also helps with their physical and mental health.
