At Thompson, we recognize that children do not develop in a vacuum; as such, we practice a wraparound approach to children’s education and growth. Our program offers many opportunities for families to partner with their children’s teachers, the classroom, and the center as a whole.

    • Care for infants and children from 6 weeks to 8 years of age
    • Circle of Parents support group
    • Parent trainings and classes with topics related to child rearing and general family support

Thompson Child Development Center uses The Creative Curriculum for Infant, Toddlers & Twos, and Preschool, a research-proven program that fosters these skills:

    • Social-emotional

    • Mathematics
    • Science and Technology

Additionally, The Creative Curriculum provides teachers with the research and tools for Kindergarten Readiness.

Along with Creative Curriculum, teachers assess the development of children using the online assessment tool, Teaching Strategies GOLD®. Teaching Strategies GOLD allows teachers and families to document developmental growth as well as assess it.

Developmental Checkpoint assessments are conducted four times a year. Parent/Teacher Conferences are held two times per year in conjunction with the fall/spring checkpoint assessments, to share the developmental progress of your child with you.
