Open House will Introduce New Child Assessment Plan
Our annual "Open House" on October 13 will be used in part to introduce the new child assessment plan for your child. "ASQ-3 Ages and Stages" is the #1 developmental screener for children from 1 month to 5 1/2 years. ASQ-3 is the most accurate, cost-effective, and parent-friendly way to screen young children and identify developmental delays as early as possible." The addition of this tool will enable our teachers to zero in on the individual needs of each child enrolled in our program to further enhance our staff's already outstanding curriculum efforts. This assessment focuses on 5 areas of growth and development: Communication, Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Problem Solving and Personal-Social. At the Open House, an explanation of how ASQ-3 works and the benefits and, all of our current families have been given a packet of assessment materials to complete and return to the child's staff. This is a very important first step in the educational future of your child, and will be used as a "baseline" for future assessments. Your cooperation will be appreciated. We will be available to go over the results of your child's assessment during the Open House for those families who have returned completed assessments before then.
Your child will have two (2) formal assessments and two (2) informal assessments during the year to enable our program and families to work together for the benefit of the children.
More information will be coming soon!
