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.​

What You Can Do to Prepare Your Children for Preschool


Preparing Your Children for Preschool

Sending a child to preschool can be an exciting yet nerve-wracking experience for parents. While it is a significant milestone for the child, it is equally crucial for parents to prepare their child for the transition to preschool. A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center offers childcare in Toledo, Ohio, and today, we will talk about how you can prepare your child for their future in preschool.

Here are some tips to help parents prepare their children for preschool:

  • Introduce Your Child to the Idea of Preschool

    It is essential to talk to your child about preschool positively. Explain to them that they will attend a new school where they will meet new friends and teachers, learn new things, and have lots of fun.

  • Visit the Preschool

    Take your child to visit the preschool before their first day. Doing so will help them become familiar with the environment and get a sense of what to expect.

  • Establish a Routine

    Preschool will likely be the first time your child will have a set routine. Establish a consistent schedule for your child that includes waking up, eating, playing, maintaining hygiene, and going to bed. With the help of childcare programs, you can assist your child in creating routines.

Preparing your child for preschool is essential to ensuring a successful transition. Remember to be patient and supportive, and your child will have a great start to their educational journey! If you are looking for a preschool in Ohio, we can help your child get ready. Contact us today!
