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.​

Empowering Families: Parent Engagement in Education


As parents, you play a critical role in our child’s education. Your involvement can significantly impact their academic success and overall well-being. But how can you empower your family to take an active role in education? One way is to prioritize quality childcare services.

Investing in your child’s early education can set them up for success. At our childcare in Toledo, Ohio, we offer programs that offer valuable resources and support to parents and caregivers, helping to build a strong foundation for their child’s development.

However, it’s about more than finding the right childcare; parent engagement is critical. Child development experts agree that parent engagement is crucial to helping children thrive academically and socially. By taking an active interest in your child’s learning, you may establish a supportive environment that encourages growth and curiosity.

Parent engagement becomes even more crucial if you’re considering enrolling your child in a preschool in Ohio. It can provide a valuable foundation for future academic success, but working closely with your child’s teacher and staying involved in their learning journey is essential. You can help guarantee that your child gets the most out of their experience and is well-prepared for kindergarten and beyond by doing so.

Parent engagement can also extend beyond the classroom. Encourage your child’s learning at home by reading with them, helping with homework, and creating a positive attitude towards education. By showing your child the value of knowledge, you can inspire them to take an active role in their education.

Creating a shared commitment to your child’s education and well-being is the goal of empowering families through parent engagement. At A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center, with the childcare programs we offer and by working together, we can help our children attain their most significant potential while creating a better future for our communities.
