Early Learning Standards Available Through Procare

The Vine Assessments System by Procare Solutions 

The Vine Assessments System by Procare Solutions is an exclusive assessments framework that simplifies wording and provides age-appropriate assessments utilized by early educators for the purpose of preparing developmental checklists on children from birth to kindergarten-entry for parent-teacher conferences. The Vine Assessments are aligned with state standards for all 50 states while being easier to use and offering a more granular breakdown on developmental milestones that parents can understand. This release of the Vine Assessments represents the latest updates including developmental continuums with 21 Goals that apply to all ages included herein. The Vine Assessments are intended for use within the digital Procare platform, including the Procare child care mobile app, which allows early childhood staff to post observations with photos/videos as evidentiary links to student goals. 

State Early Learning Standards

Staying aligned with early learning frameworks is easy through Procare’s pre-loaded standards for all 50 states. Procare sources the most up-to-date standards by state to ensure you can leverage accurate and timely resources. ECEs can apply state early learning standards to lesson plans to ensure each domain that is covered in the classroom can be recorded as observations, enabling early learning providers to track specific events that contribute to a child’s development against a standard. Compile reports on each student’s development to easily see their progress and share with parents. Have proprietary learning standards that aren’t included in your state’s guidelines? Use Procare’s customizable learning frameworks to input your domains, sub-domains and milestones – all of which can be assigned to ages or categories.

Early Learning Montessori Standards

Staying aligned with early learning frameworks is easy through Procare’s pre-loaded Montessori standards. Procare has pre-loaded the Montessori standards which focuses on all areas of child development – cognitive, emotional, social and physical.  To learn more about Montessori standards, visit the Montessori Foundation.

ECEs that adopt the Montessori standard can utilize integrated lesson plans to ensure each domain that is covered in the classroom can be recorded as observations, enabling early learning providers to track specific events that contribute to a child’s development against a standard. Compile reports on each student’s development to easily see their progress and share with parents. Procare enables the ability to include proprietary learning standards as well.
