GOOD Things are Happenening - NCDC is on a Roll!
Our "Open House" on October 13 was very sucessful as we introduced the new child assessment plan and reviewed the very first results for children enrolled. At the Open House, an explanation of how ASQ-3 works and the benefits of the screening. The children's families were able to ask questions and meet individually with their child's classroom teachers. Refreshments and a very relaxed atmosphere added a pleasant touch to the event.
Apple picking and a visit to the Pumpkin Patch were great field trips for the children and the many parents that were able to make it. Weather was nice. Go to our Field Trips section for details.
Teaching Strategies GOLD is up next. We already have set up our account and will implement this outstanding program around November 9th. Mr.Vince, Samantha, and Cheryl will be attending training on November 8 and 15, which will give us an excellent team to train all the staff, who have had discussions about TSG, and a few have actually used the program in the past. With the addition of ASQ-3 and Teaching Strategies GOLD components, the Northwest Child Development Center will be at the "cutting edge" in today's child care technology.
"Mr. Vince" has submitted our Accreditation renewal package to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) in Washington, D.C. NAEYC will review our documents and make an unannounced visit to our site to confirm our qualifications. We'll keep you posted!
