OUR GOAL IS YOUR GOAL … ONLY THE BEST FOR YOUR CHILD.
Town & Country teachers are able to successfully implement the curricula in their classrooms by engaging in an ongoing cycle:
Observe – Observing the Child’s Progress & Development
Record – Recording Observations, Creating Classroom and Child Portfolios
Assess – Completing Developmental Assessments
Share – Conducting Parent/Teacher Conferences
Teachers complete Developmental Assessments for each child three times per year using data gathered and collected in the child’s portfolio. The classroom teacher will study your child’s individual portfolio, analyzing a variety of work samples such as paintings, collages and/or name writing along with anecdotal notes on physical, social/emotional, and cognitive achievements in order to determine his or her developmental growth. The developmental assessment displays your child’s progress on a variety of age-appropriate performance standards. It also details your child’s interests and passions, strengths and growth, goals for home and school, and how we will challenge their days ahead.
Parent/Teacher Conferences occur two times per year for infants and toddlers (November and May); three times per year for preschoolers (November, February, and May). During your conference, you will discuss your child’s developmental assessment in detail. The teacher will use work samples as well as photos and videos to display your child’s growth and achievements. This is also an excellent opportunity for you to share successes and concerns that you might have for your child at home. At the end of your conference, you will work with your child’s teacher to develop a list of goals for home and school and strategies for encouraging future growth and development.
