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.​

Healthy Foods for Your Picky Eater


Your child’s nutrition is crucial for their overall health. Having proper nutrition can help your child maintain a healthy immune system, become safe from malnourishment, and even help reduce your child’s risk of obesity.

During their early years, it is very important that you feed your child healthy foods so that they get the nutrition that they need. Unfortunately, not all children like to eat healthy foods. Some children, especially those in kindergarten, prefer to eat unhealthy foods, such as junk foods, candies, sweet drinks, and more.

If you have trouble making your child eat healthy foods, allow us to help you. As a provider of high-quality childcare programs, we will be more than happy to share with you some healthy foods that your picky eaters might like.

  • French Fries

    Fries are a good source of iron and potassium, which can be very good for your kids. Just make sure to prepare them in a much healthier way.

  • Veggie Chips

    If your child hates vegetables, consider baking sweet potatoes, chopped beets, and zucchini to make something similar to chips. They might even enjoy the crunchy texture of these veggies.

  • Pumpkin Pancakes

    Pancakes are good for your children since they are prepared with flour, which is loaded with B vitamins and iron. To make your pancakes more nutritious, simply add pumpkin puree to your mixture.
