Day Early Learning teachers have been trained to assess children using Teaching Strategies’ GOLD assessment. This system assesses children across 23 developmental objectives that predict school success, which Day Early Learning has mapped to the early essentials that guide our approach to teaching and learning.
Each child has an individualized assessment plan, and teachers conduct four observation-based checkpoints throughout the year to ensure steady growth.
Children’s progress is charted against normal development trends, with information provided on what children should be achieving next in their growth trajectory. This information helps teachers ensure children are progressing towards developmental milestones and identify any areas in which they need additional support.
