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.​

Determining High-Quality Preschool Programs


Our children mean everything to us parents. There’s nothing that we won’t do when it comes to providing the best in every aspect of our kids’ well-being, especially in the area of early childhood education. We should put emphasis on selecting a high-quality program that fosters the overall development of our respective children such as the preschool in Ohio. A program wherein we can observe right away that learning is happening. Read on to know some of the factors that are vital in achieving the best possible results for our children.

  • Teacher qualifications

    The teachers of top-quality childcare programs have bachelor’s degrees as well as finished specialized training in the area of childhood education. Their teacher aides have at least a child development associate credential. Both teachers and teacher aides need to have a minimum of fifteen hours yearly for professional development. The salaries and benefits of their teachers, as well as aides, are at the same level as those of the K-12 teachers and aides. Top-quality childcare programs hire teachers as well as aides who manifest the diversity of cultures among the kids and families they serve.

  • Classrooms

    Top-quality early childhood education programs don’t allow over twenty kids per classroom. For every class, the number of kids does not exceed ten for each teacher. This will ensure that the teacher can provide ample attention to each student.

  • Families

    Top-quality childcare centers show respect as well as provide support to every family’s home language as well as teaching efforts that are done at home. There’s an exchange of valuable information between the teachers and family members regarding the kid’s strengths and achievements, favorite activities, and his/her progress in learning. Family members are also engaged in the program via conferences with teachers, chances to help in the classroom, home visits, etc. They are offered essential information on parenting, nutrition, and social services as well.

  • Curriculum

    An excellent quality pre-k curriculum creates goals best suited to pre-k, and utilizes learning as well as developmental norms that are researched-based, age-appropriate, and conform to the state’s K-12 criteria. This curriculum gives everyday learning chances in the area of language and reasoning, math, science, dramatic play, block play, music, and art in various settings such as whole-class activities, and individual and small-group interactions. A high-quality curriculum also fosters the development of every kid’s home language and assists every kid to learn English. This curriculum offers integrated learning throughout the kids’ cognitive, physical, emotional, as well as social development.

At A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center, we have excellent teachers and a top-quality curriculum that ensure your child will get the best possible education. Feel free to contact us about our childcare in Toledo, Ohio.
