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.​

Negative Effects of Too Much Screen Time


Development happens quickly in young children, especially those under the age of three. Young children in daycare or preschool in Ohio pick up knowledge by investigating their surroundings, observing the people in their life, and then copying them. A child has the capacity to see and engage in ordinary everyday activities. They need to learn about the world and may be hindered by excessive screen time that may be harmful to their general development.

While digital gadgets may offer hours upon hours of enjoyment and instructional material, excessive screen time can be damaging. As a provider of childcare programs, we recommend parents place a reasonable limit on entertainment media. Here are some harmful effects of too much screen time on your kids:

  • Behavioral problems
    More than two hours a day of TV or internet usage by kids increases their risk of emotional, social, and attention issues.
  • Educational problems
    Kids who watch TV in their beds score lower on scholastic exams.
  • Sleep problems
    Although many parents use television to unwind before night, seeing screens right before bed might be harmful. Because screen light disrupts the brain’s natural sleep cycle, it can cause insomnia.
