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.​

Encouraging Your Kids to Be Obedient


Stress, conflicts, school problems, and their temperament may cause children from Kindergarten to be disobedient. Many factors affect their behavior toward others, especially with parents, and it is up to us adults to find out what is going on to be able to address these issues.

As parents and enforcers of childcare programs, we have many ways to raise obedient kids. Here are some of them:

  • Lead by example

    Demonstrate obedience in your own actions and interactions. Children often learn by observing adults, so modeling the behavior you want to instill is crucial. And this should not only take place at home but also inside childcare centers.

  • Clear expectations

    Establish clear and age-appropriate expectations for your child. Communicate rules and boundaries, helping them understand the reasons behind certain guidelines.

  • Positive reinforcement

    Encourage obedience through positive reinforcement. Praise and reward your child when they follow instructions or behave appropriately, reinforcing the idea that obedience leads to positive outcomes.

  • Consistency is key

    Be consistent in enforcing rules and consequences at home and in their preschool in Ohio. Consistency helps children understand that certain behaviors will consistently lead to specific outcomes, reinforcing the importance of obedience. So, parents and educators must work hand-in-hand.

  • Communication

    Foster open communication with your child. Explain the reasons behind the rules, listen to their thoughts, and encourage them to express themselves. This creates an environment where they understand the importance of obedience rather than just following orders mindlessly.

A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center believes that we can be our children’s good influencers. Together, we can do so much in enforcing positive child development.
