NC Pre-K News
Did you know that all NC Pre-K teachers are Birth-Kindergarten certified teachers? This means they have to go through the same types of rigorous training and professional development as any public school teacher.
In August, Cabarrus County NC Pre-K teachers attended training on the use of Teaching Strategies Gold (TSG). TSG is an online based child portfolio assessment system. Throughout the year, teachers plan developmentally appropriate activities that will help them gather information about each child’s developmental skill levels. This information is gathered and rated on the Creative Curriculum Developmental Continuum. Then the information is used to plan future activities that help the children progress to the next skill levels on the continuum. This information is shared with parents throughout the school year during parent conferences.
Our teachers are hardworking, dedicated professionals working to make sure children in the NCPK Program are as ready as possible when they enter Kindergarten. We love our teachers!
