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.​

Identifying Excellent Early Care and Education Programs


As parents, we should be aware of different ways to get the best learning opportunities for our babies and preschoolers. One essential choice for us to make for our kid’s early years includes child care or preschool. One of the most crucial development periods of our kid’s life is their first few years. If our child is nurtured and stimulated in these vital years, they will be more prepared for formal reading and math. They will possess the social skills needed when they reach kindergarten as well.

Read on to learn some of the guidelines provided by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) that will aid us in determining top-quality early care and education programs for our young kids, such as our preschool in Ohio.

  • The emphasis of preschool and childcare programs is on children.
    We should observe that our kids interact with fellow kids as well as adults for them to form healthy relationships. We can also inquire about the curriculum, which should cover various activities suitable for kids’ ages and requirements, such as those implemented by childcare programs.
  • The staff of preschool and childcare programs is qualified.
    It’s essential that the staff of childcare centers possess the educational background to foster our child’s learning and development. We should ask what degrees and training the teachers possess. We can also inquire how long the teachers and staff have been involved with the program. Those teachers who have stayed in the program for a long time have the capacity to direct their attention to kids and form bonds with them.
  • Good preschool and childcare programs are able to form good relationships with families.
    It’s vital that the program or daycare staff should be able to collaborate with families to satisfy the needs of our kids. We can inquire about ways information and concerns are communicated between us parents and the staff. We need to know as well whether the program’s policies enable families to visit our kids within the program day.
  • Good preschool and childcare programs are well-run.
    We should determine whether the program obtained a license from the state. The facilities, both indoors and outdoors, have to be suitable for the children’s ages and must be maintained well. We also need to find out if the program implements policies and practices to ensure the safety of the kids from preventable disease and injury. We should know about the child-to-teacher ratio, which will aid us in determining how much individual attention our kid is getting.

At A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center, we put a premium on your child’s education through our excellent curriculum, top-quality facilities, and highly-qualified teachers and staff. Feel free to contact our childcare in Toledo, Ohio.
