PreschoolFirst offers a number of management and competitive advantages for preschools. These include:
• A uniform, validated assessment system for observing the development of preschool children. It is based on the Infant – Preschool Assessment Scale compiled by Dr. Sally Flagler at the University of North Carolina. PreschoolFirst allows teachers to easily record and access observations made during daily, play-based activities.
• An extensive, continuously growing library currently comprised of more than 1,500 theme-based play activities that gives preschools a professionally-designed curriculum resource for their teachers.
• A convenient online "planning book" that reduces lesson planning time, record keeping, and simplifies gathering of required lesson materials.
• Flexible reporting, providing full information to teachers while allowing parents to see selected reports. This feature strengthens the home-school connection, while retaining confidentiality and security.
