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.​

You Are Your Child’s Guide to Proper Nutrition


Parent engagement in their child’s nutrition is critical for their overall health and development. Our preschool in Ohio would like to share the reasons why:

  • Establishing healthy eating habits: By engaging with their nutrition, parents can introduce a variety of healthy foods and model healthy eating behaviors, which can help establish a foundation for a lifetime of healthy eating. This also encourages children to avoid picky eating, which can help them eat the nutritious snacks offered by their daycare.
  • Meeting nutritional needs: Parents can ensure their nutritional needs by providing a well-balanced diet. Children who consume a diet that meets their needs are more likely to have better overall health and be at a lower risk for chronic diseases.
  • Managing weight and preventing obesity: By promoting healthy eating habits and encouraging physical activity, parents can help their children maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of developing obesity-related health issues. Not to worry, our childcare programs include physical activity for children, which includes lots and lots of play learning.
  • Modeling healthy behaviors: Parents who engage with their nutrition can model healthy behaviors that their children emulate. When parents eat healthy foods and prioritize physical activity, they set an example for their child development.
  • Strengthening family bonds: Engaging in meal planning, grocery shopping, and cooking as a family can help strengthen family bonds and create a positive mealtime environment. Children who eat meals with their families are more likely to have better mental health, better academic performance, and a lower risk of engaging in risky behaviors.
