PSD EHS educational goals include supporting infant and toddler growth ina safe, nurturing, developmentally appropriate early childhood program incollaboration with families and the community. In order to provide aconsistent nurturing environment, EHS practices "continuity of care" whichmeans that the child will have the same caregiver in a 1 to 4 teacher-childratio until they are ready for preschool.AssessmentsEHS teachers use a variety of sources to prepare weekly lesson plans thatmeet children's individual needs. These include: Creative Curriculum,Nutrition Plans, ISFP's, mental health plans, health screenings, medicalreports, parent goals, and children's interests. Also, the RevisedInfant/Toddler Environment Rating Scale and the Infant / ToddlerClassroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) are used to monitorclassroom environments.PSD EHS teachers use Teaching Strategies GOLD (TSG) to blend ongoingobservational assessment for all areas of development and learning withperformance tasks for selected predictors of school success in the areas ofliteracy and numeracy. TSG is used to assess all children, including Englishlanguage learners, children with disabilities, and children who demonstratecompetencies beyond typical developmental expectations.TSG is not intended as a screening or diagnostic measure, an achievementtest, or a program-evaluation tool. PSD EHS utilizes other screeningmeasures, such as the Brigance Early Head Start Screen, which allowteachers to easily identify potential developmental delays and giftedness inlanguage, motor, self-help, social-emotional, and cognitive skills. TSG, inaddition to information gathered from other screeners, is used to documentchildren’s learning over time, inform instruction, and facilitatecommunication with families and other stakeholders.Supporting Children with DisabilitiesFor children with disabilities, all FIRST STEPS (early intervention) processesbegin during the first week of school to ensure that there is not a lag inservices. Also, through monitoring progress and referrals, additionalchildren have been identified as needing access to early interventionservices. Our teachers and nursing staff are members of the interventionteam whose goals are to ensure that all children receive individualized andquality services. Parents receive support to learn how to advocate for theirchild’s needs so that that when children with disabilities transition topreschool, parents are able to make decisions and express those needs totheir children’s next teacher(s).educationService Area: Education& disability services19

Any child identified as having difficulties is monitored byteachers, Curriculum Manager, and parents to determine whetheradditional referrals are needed. September 2015 / January 2016 / April 2016 Full TSG Assessment byClassroom Teachers. TSG enables teachers to focus on and measure theknowledge, skills, and behaviors most predictive of school success. Thetool has a total of 38 objectives. Two objectives are related specificallyto English language acquisition, and the other 36 objectives areorganized into ten areas of development and content-area learning. Monthly – Teachers complete monthly anecdotal records (a writtenrecord of a child's progress based on milestones particular to cognitivedevelopment). Teachers observe and then record results in TSG of a child's actions andwork, pictures, sample work and video recordings throughout the daywhile the activities are occurring to document each child’s progress.

See the Teaching Strategies Gold Snapshot Reports for the Fall and Spring Assessments to show theprogress of children enrolled in Center-based and Child Care Partnership Programs last year. Bycomparing children's results to expectations established by research, positive development is evidentin all domains. For both groups, the number of children not meeting expectations in the Fall decreased,and the number of children meeting and exceeding expectations increased in all domains ofdevelopment by the end of the year.PSD EHS - Centerbased OutcomesFall 2016 - N etingCognitiveLiteracyMathematicsExceedingSpring 2017 - N 120100%39%50%51%10%39%53%41% thematicsExceedingPSD EHS - Child Care Partnership / Family Child CareFall 2016 - N 102100%50%65%70%58%36%31%5%4%4%23%63%54%49% pring 2017 - N lowMeetingCognitiveLiteracyMathematicsExceeding21

TransitionEHS TRANSITIONIn May 2017, eighty-eight (88) children (29 from EHS - Picayune, 20 from EHS- Nicholson, 39 from Childcare Partners) transitioned out of Early Head Startinto preschool. PSD EHS’ transition goal is to support families so that thechange is as smooth as possible. Early Head Start Managers meet with theparents to find out what parents intend for their child’s preschool educationand coordinate meetings for those wanting to apply for the Picayune SchoolDistrict Pre-K Program. Children attend a field trip to “big school” and read abook designed by a Picayune School District Preschool Teacher called “It’sFun to Be There” to prepare them for the next school year. The children alsomake an “All About Me” booklet to give to their next teacher with help fromtheir parents and their EHS teacher.

PARENT EDUCATIONParent edAt Picayune Early Head Start, it is important to us that parents and familieshave the opportunity to advance their own learning interests througheducation, training and other experiences that support their parenting,careers, and life goals. In addition to involving parents in program policymaking and operations, PSD EHS provides parent involvement and educationactivities that are responsive to the ongoing and expressed needs of theparents, both as individuals and as members of a group.27
