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.​

How to Make Healthy Eating Fun and Exciting


Healthy eating is essential for growing children, but getting them excited about nutritious foods can be challenging. As parents or caregivers, we must provide our children with the necessary nutrients and instill healthy eating habits early on. Early childhood education can offer valuable resources and support to parents in this journey.

So, how can you make healthy eating fun and exciting for your child? Our childcare in Toledo, Ohio, has some tips that can help:

  • Get creative with the presentation

    Kids love colorful and fun presentations. Arrange fruits and veggies into fun shapes or designs to make them more enticing to your child.

  • Involve Your Child in Meal Planning

    Encourage your child to help you plan meals and make grocery lists. This can help them feel more invested in the process and excited about trying new foods.

  • Make Eating an Adventure

    Turn mealtime into an adventure by exploring new cuisines and trying different recipes. Please have your child help you cook and let them be involved in the process.

  • Use Positive Reinforcement

    Celebrate your child’s healthy choices and progress towards healthier eating habits. A positive and encouraging environment can help your child feel more excited about eating healthy.

At A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center, we offer valuable resources for parents and caregivers in promoting healthy eating habits and child development.

Our preschool in Ohio offers age-appropriate educational resources, nutrition advice, and support to parents in fostering healthy eating habits.

Let’s face it; convincing a child to eat healthily can be a daunting task, but with the right strategies, it can be a fun and exciting adventure. Following the tips above, you can turn mealtime into an opportunity to explore, learn, and bond with your child.
