How does Little Creek evaluate a child's growth and development?
Every Little Creek student is evaluated within the first 30 days during the school year.

Once these Goals and Objectives have been set, a personalized report is generated for each individual student. Every student in Little Creek has a personalized report, there are no two alike. No other program in this areas offers this to their preschool students. Assessments are done using Ages and Stages Questionnaires in partnership with our families in our Infants through Four Year Old Classroom. Our teachers meet with families twice a year for parent-teacher conferences.
