Nationally Recognized Play-Based Curriculum
Our teachers are trained in and implement The Creative Curriculum for Preschool, a nationally recognized play-based curriculum designed to help children develop their social competence, positive approach to learning, and the pre-academic skills needed to succeed as learners.
Each of our highly qualified teachers conducts developmental screenings, using the Ages and Stages Questionnaire -ASQ SE and 3 developmental screenings are fun, brief, play-based screenings to obtain a snapshot of the child’s current level of development at their point of entry into the program.
The Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP-15) is used to conduct ongoing assessments for each child to measure and monitor the child’s progress in meeting developmental and educational goals throughout the year. Parent/teacher conferences are held three times per year, in which teachers review the assessment outcomes with parents and develop an individualized learning plan for the child in partnership with the parent.
