The instruction we offer to our students is based on the Kentucky Early Childhood Standards (refer to link on sidebar). Our curriculum consists of ten thematic units developed by the Houghton Mifflin company and includes activities designed to teach concepts such as literacy and phonemic awareness, numbers and operations, vocabulary development, and scientific processes. Student’s learning and progress is evaluated using the Teaching Strategies GOLD assessment tool. Each developmental category is assessed based on information collected through observation in the classroom. This information is communicated with our families on three occasions throughout the school year.
