What sets our preschool apart from the rest? Regular communications with our parents are in the form of a daily curriculum correspondence that breaks down what activities are implemented for the day. When children tell their parents they played all day, then we are doing our job! At the beginning of the new academic year, we do in-house assessments, based on the Beyond Centers and Circle Time Curriculum series, for the students to ascertain what goals they have already mastered and what goals to focus on. Our preschool teachers use them to as a reference throughout the academic year for lesson planning and to do a final assessment for parents one month before the academic year is complete. You will notice that teachers communicate frequently about achievements and goals they are working on in the preschool classroom. We arrange parent conferences as needed/requested to discuss a child’s progress anytime during the year. We believe our "strategic fun" lesson planning is one of the reasons we provide one of the best early childhood education programs in Florida.
