    What is a Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS)? 

    A QRIS is a shared set of standards that define quality for early learning programs serving children birth to age 5. Specifically, a QRIS: · Assesses the quality of the learning environment; · Rates the program on specific quality measures found in the California Quality Rating Matrix such as learning activities, teacher-child interactions, and environment;· Supports the program to improve the quality of care for children; and · Communicates the quality of the program on a scale of 1-5.

    Creative Curriculum

    The Creative Curriculum is an early childhood curriculum designed to foster children’s social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development and to enhance learning in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology. The curriculum incorporates the use of “studies,” which are project-based investigations focused on meaningful science and social studies topics that provide children with an opportunity to apply skills in literacy, math, the arts, and technology. The Creative Curriculum also emphasizes the use of ongoing, observation-based child assessments to help guide instruction.

    Study

    Families,

    Our class is beginning to study trees. We’ll be observing and comparing trees to learn about what lives in them, what they’re made from and who cares for them. We hope that this study will help children explore and appreciate nature. As we study trees, we will use literacy, math, the arts, and technology to explore the topic in depth. We will learn important social studies and scientific concepts through firsthand investigations. Please visit the classroom during the study to see how we do this. If you are able to take a “tree walk” with your child, we would appreciate your help in collecting tree parts to investigate. If you can, please take a bag to a tree area and collect things that have fallen, such as leaves, bark, acorns, twigs, flowers, fruit, or cones. See below for suggestions of other tree parts to bring in:

    · variety of leaves small limbs, branches, twigs food from trees  (fruit, nuts) pinecones

    · evergreen sprigs or small boughs a live, potted tree flower clippings (may be kept in water) seeds

    · tree “cookies” (cross sections of trees that show the rings) bark
