Goals and Objectives
Each week the teachers set group goals. These goals may incorporate ideas from the weekly theme, basic concepts, or may be general developmental goals. Also, there are individual objectives incorporated each week. Again, these may apply to the weekly themes, concepts, or to that childâ€™s general development.
