Dear TLC Families ,
We hope this message finds you well. You may or may not have used our developmental screening tool before, the Ages and Stages Questionnaire 3 and the Ages and Stages Questionnaire Social and Emotional 2. We use the ASQ and the ASQ/SE2 to track your child’s development. A letter including more in-depth information about this screening tool is attached to this email. Please go to both links below at your earliest convenience and enter in your child’s information (the links appear to be very similar but the questionnaires themselves are different so be sure to enter your information at both sites). Please complete your child’s questionnaire(s) by November 19.
We will also be offering parent/ teacher conferences based on ASQ results in December.

Thank you to all of you who were able to attend our parent night! We are excited to continue on our journey as a Reggio Inspired School and invite you to explore STEAM concepts along with us this year.
The questions that we will use to influence and guide curriculum this year will be:
How do children naturally explore S.T.E.A.M. concepts?
How do or can we cultivate the wonder of learning through this lens?
Beginning in September, our schoolwide focus will be on S.T.E.A.M. concepts in the Early Childhood Classroom.
We invite you to join us in partnership exploring S.T.E.A.M. and the wonder of learning through this lens.
What is S.T.E.A.M?
How can we promote these concepts?
Start with observation.....the play behaviors listed below occur naturally in children's play. As you begin to look for these concepts, you will see that children are naturally drawn to this type of play.
What to look for...
