We believe that preschool is where children form their first impressions of the world around them. It is in our playgrounds and classrooms where our attitudes toward conflict resolution, community, and a sense of our place in society are primarily developed.
We believe these first impressions are lasting, and therefore vital to the moral and social integrity of each child. Each moment has the potential for human growth and character development, and we understand the importance of our role in this stage of your child's life.
Play is an essential skill for children to learn. Through the activity of playing, children explore their world, find out how to get along with others, test their skills and muscles, explore new ideas, and build confidence and self-esteem. Curiosity, self-esteem, language, problem-solving, mathematics, cooperation, and endurance are just a few of the many benefits of learning through play. The activity of playing is an integral part of learning at this stage of development and is an invaluable tool to prepare children for the future.
Understanding and respecting children's individual styles helps teachers create a more nurturing and caring atmosphere. Our teachers use an inquiry-based approach through which the children engage in educational and fun-filled experiences that promote each child's uniqueness as an individual. It is that quality of loving, family-like interaction between adults and children and among the students themselves that best captures the spirit of our Preschool and Kindergarten Readiness programs.
