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.​

Harnessing the Power of Kindergarten Readiness


Regarding ideal early education, childcare in Toledo, Ohio, stands out. Excellent early education goes far beyond academics—it’s about building self-confidence, social skills, and a love for learning.

Now, let’s shift focus to a stellar preschool in Ohio. What does it offer? It’s simple—preschools set the stage for children, preparing them for kindergarten. They don’t just introduce kids to a structured learning world but also focus on social, cognitive development, and emotional well-being. The beauty of preschools is that they spark curiosity and creativity, making learning an intriguing and enjoyable game!

However, what makes for a smooth school ride? We’d say the impressive childcare programs. These programs are more than just activities—they teach social rules, good manners, and the importance of sharing. They offer an environment where your child’s personality can bloom. They fill their earliest memories with fun, outdoor games, and feelings of unity and friendship. In short, a well-rounded program supports children’s overall growth—academic and character development.

Now, we eye the end goal—kindergarten—which brings its own set of expectations. It is when the seeds of indoor comprehension and outdoor exploration we’ve planted need to bear fruit. Your child should confidently identify letters and numbers, respond to instructions, politely interact with other children, and manage their emotions. Appropriate childcare, preschool participation, and carefully planned program completion should make these tasks a cakewalk.

To sum it up, your child’s growth revolves around harnessing the power of kindergarten readiness. Are you keen on diving deeper into how to enhance your child’s educational journey? Let’s explore more at A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center!
