Four areas of focus and measurement

Implementing a planned curriculum that addresses the stages of child development:

Our educational planning references Creative Curriculum, which uses children's wonder and inquisitiveness in the learning process.  Lessons are developed with children's interest in God's world by using play and choice making to grow critical thinking skills, problem solving and discovery. Additionally, we are adding a Godly Play Room,  which is a storytelling curriculum tapping into a child's sense of wonder and awe about God, the world around us, and each of our places in it.  Preschool and church staff work together to ensure positive introductions to God's love and learning!

Demonstrating professional growth of staff in excess of licensing requirements:

Each teacher and aide participates in additional professional training annually including CPR, blood borne pathogens and  State safety regulations.  Teachers and aides also complete at least 20 hours of additional training ensuring that staff stay up to date on educational practices and provide the highest quality learning to families in the program. 

Establishing a strategic plan:

The yearly parent surveys and conversations with staff help the Preschool Council to make our programming meaningful for the community. This included becoming a Paths to Quality Level 3 Preschool, so families can use CCDF vouchers, On My Way Mini-grants and church scholarships.  These are  open to families to provide the highest quality preschool at prices that are not beyond parent's ability to pay.

Facilitating family and staff input into the program:

The cooperation of parents and staff are the backbone of the program!  It is through the talent and gifts families share with us, conversations about learning expectations, and planned collaborations between the staff and parents that improvements are made to programming. Annual parent surveys, parents involvement in fundraising events, and participation in positions open on the Faith Harvest Preschool Council (the governing body of the preschool) maintains and ensures high quality programming standards relevant for today 's learners in our community.
