Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)
- The ASQ is a questionnaire that has specific age appropriate questions to be
answered by the parent. Most people have no trouble understanding and
completing the questionnaire. The questionnaire targets five skills:
Communication, Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Problem Solving, and
Personal-Social. After the questionnaire is completed it is then used
by the preschool staff to determine whether the child's skills are on target or
need help. If a skill is not on target the staff will design small group lessons
that will help the child's skills improve.
-Below are the questionnaires used.

Child Observation Record (COR)
-The COR is an observation-based assessment of young children's knowledge
and abilities in all areas of development. The COR is an observational tool.
Teachers or caregivers spend a few minutes each day writing brief notes
("anecdotes") that describe significant episodes of young children's behavior.
-COR anecdotes, gathered on a child over time are systematically rated
according to the COR framework, are the basic units of information
that are complied and analyzed to provide a comprehensive portrait of each
child's developmental gains and of the progress of the group as a whole.
