Child care providers play a critical role in a child’s early development. In fact, research has shown that when children attend high-quality early learning programs, they not only have better academic achievement, but also, they show improvements in critical behavioral traits like sociability, motivation and self-esteem.
That’s why many child care programs incorporate State or Montessori learning standards into their curricula to ensure the children in their care are meeting physical, cognitive, and social and emotional development guidelines.
But tracking learning and development and making sure they’re aligned with specific standards can be cumbersome. That’s why child care programs choose to leverage software and applications that can make the process a lot easier.
At Procare, we source the most up-to-date State and Montessori standards and pre-load them into our platforms to simplify lesson planning and milestone tracking. These allow child care providers and educators to:
- Track children’s development in a particular area or domain.
- Create reports on each student’s development to easily see their progress and share it with parents.
We also know that some early childhood organizations have their own curriculum. In that case, centers can create customizable learning frameworks to input their domains, sub-domains and milestones – all of which can be assigned to ages or categories.
You can access State and Montessori standards through Procare’s Connect and Select platforms.*
