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.​

Improving Your Child’s Communication Skills


Interacting with your child, whether verbal or nonverbal, is a form of communication. Watch how you communicate because it will help establish how your kids interact with others. So how can you help them communicate well? Learn more below:

  • Listen actively

    Communication is not just about speaking. It emphasizes listening, too! Train your child to listen by listening to them actively. At a kindergarten, listening is necessary for learning, so help your kids be more attentive at home so they can apply it in school, too!

  • Speak clearly

    Concise speaking is the key to effective communication. At a preschool in Ohio, your kids will learn to speak in front of a crowd, but at home, you can teach your kids how to speak clearly by speaking clearly to them. Give them comprehensible instructions so they can also be more effective in communicating both at home and school.

  • Explain your feelings

    Most childcare programs include empathetic communication, so how can you teach your kids? While most kids find it difficult to express their feelings, encourage your kids to speak and let their feelings be known. In the end, communication is a two-way street, so try to channel your feelings, and they will imitate how you do it.
