Child Assessment

Desired Results Developmental Profile

The Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDPr) is the assessment tool used by the Child Development Center to document the progress made by our students and address areas of weakness. The DRDPr is completed twice a year and is followed up with a parent teacher conference to discuss the results.

Preschool Curriculum

Houghton Mifflin

The Houghton Mifflin Pre-k curriculum is a “hands-on, minds-on” program designed to provide the foundational skills to prepare children for kindergarten. The curriculum focuses on phonological awareness, listening comprehension, and alphabet development. This curriculum is also the same curriculum that we use in our kindergarten classes across the district, so now our students will have a seamless transition as they continue on to our kindergarten classes.

Handwriting Without Tears

Handwriting Without Tears is a hand-on curriculum for fine-motor and language development as well as handwriting success. The program was designed by an occupational therapist and helps children develop important readiness skills for kindergarten, such as recognizing and building letters, vocabulary growth, body awareness, socialization skills and much more.


Our Staff members work together as a nurturing team to meet the needs of our students. All of our Teachers possess a Teaching Credential or a Child Development Teaching Permit issued by the State of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. Teachers develop weekly lesson plans addressing student needs and developmental growth as well as correlating with school curriculum. Our staff are always available to meet with parents to discuss each student’s individual needs.

Our instructional aides are closely integrated with the teachers and curriculum to help support the emotional and academic growth of the children (the whole child). All staff are encouraged to participate in professional growth in-service training, night staff meetings and most of our staff members are certified in First Aid and CPR.
