Developmental Goals

At the Garden Preschool, we follow the National Accreditation for the Education of Young Children suggestions. Our staff plans, implements, and evaluates the classroom curriculum so your child receives the best opportunities for high quality education. We follow the research based Creative Curriculum and provide stimulating, developmentally appropriate learning experiences and skill development through exploration and discovery. Our objectives are aligned with Douglas County Public Schools and Colorado Early Learning Development Guidelines.

The curriculum, while reflecting children’s interests, is designed to ensure school readiness.  This includes designing the environment, planning experiences, and selecting materials to help accomplish our goals and give each child a successful start in school. A child should go through the preschool years associating fun with learning.  

Individual developmental goals are created using the Teaching Strategies Assessments. Two parent conferences are held during the school year, one in the fall and one in the spring.  Assessment results are used to individualize curriculum and lesson planning.            

We are constantly striving to improve, and so the Garden has created a Quality Improvement Plan. The QIP is updated quarterly and is kept in the office. It is available for parent to review at any time.
