What are the educational goals of Child Saving Institute managed Early Childhood Education Centers?
Our goal is that children in our child care centers build a solid foundation for developing and maintaining future healthy relationships with others, as well as prepare them to be academically and socially ready for Kindergarten.
- Approaching life as an invitation to learn
- Becoming a confident and competent lifelong learner
- Developing emotional intelligence, personal power and social skills

How will you assess my child’s development?
We use the scientifically-proven assessment tool, Teaching Strategies GOLD®, to observe and document your child’s progress every day and assess their learning and development over time. This includes documenting activities on a daily basis; taking notes about what we see and hear; collecting samples of your child’s drawings, artwork and writing attempts.
What does NAEYC accreditation mean for my child?
It means, at Child Saving Institute centers, you can expect:
- Smaller child/teacher ratios
- Teachers who are degreed and/or attend regular trainings
- Assessment programs that showcase children’s learning—both socially and academically
- A physical environment that is safe, educational and fun for young children

NAEYC accreditation is a mark of quality in early childhood education and benefits children with greater readiness for and success in school.
