Students in the YMCA Preschool Program at T.O. Smith Elementary School demonstrated significant academic and physical development as measured by the Curriculum-Based Assessment (CBA).The two student groups of 3 and 4 year olds have different developmental standards and are assessed on level. The results revealed the students made substantial progress as measured by the CBA. Overall, the 4-year old student group showed a 103-point developmental proficiency gain, from 37 to 140 points. Of the 3-year olds tested on the CBA in the T.O. Smith program, students achieved an overall 55-point gain in developmental proficiency on the Utah’s Early Childhood Core Standards. The students showed a remarkable progress in each of the developmental areas: oral language development, phonemic awareness, alphabet knowledge, pre-writing skills, book print knowledge, math, social-emotional development, and motor skills.
