Assessment is defined as the process of observing, recording and documenting what your child does, knows and understands.
Throughout the year, we oversee the child and document his/her progress. Our knowledge of your child helps us to plan an appropriate and challenging curriculum that is tailored to meet his/her strengths, needs and interests.
Under the direction and supervision of the centre head, all staff at the preschool are involved in the assessment of children. They receive on-going training and have access to teaching resources to support their understanding.
Progress is observed and documented in the following developmental and academic content areas: Cognitive, Language, Social, Emotional, Physical, Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Music and Dance.
The children are assessed three times a year, in August, December and March. Assessments are based on utilization of teaching strategies that include on-going observations and samples of classroom work. Kindergarten students go through informal and stress-free tests for assessments.
Parent-teacher conferences are typically conducted at least thrice during the school year to encourage parental involvement and discuss your child’s current performance and progress.
