Each child has their own portfolio binder, which is updated routinely by his/her classroom teachers.  The portfolio is a compilation of pictures, quotes, artwork, writing samples (if applicable), and information regarding developmental milestones that chronicles each individual child’s growth and development at Compass.  Each portfolio is accessible in the classroom and parents can  reference it at any time to gather information about their child’s early learning experiences.

Keep "growth binders" for each child that includes pictures, quotes, artwork, writing samples, and information regarding developmental milestones that chronicles each individual child’s growth and development over the year.
