Curriculum and Standards
The Quality Preschool Program Standards state that “the curriculum guides teachers to incorporate content, concepts, and activities that foster social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development and that integrate key areas of content including literacy, mathematics, science, technology, creative expression and the arts, health and safety, and social studies. The schedule provides children learning opportunities, experiences, and projects that extend over the course of several days and incorporates time for play, self-initiated learning, creative expression, large-group, small-group, and child-initiated activity."
Information collected will be used to write a Family Conference Form (report card) and will be sent home three times a year in the fall, winter, and spring. Families will be given ongoing opportunities to share observations from home and contribute to the assessment process. Conferences will be held twice a year.
