Evaluating the program philosophy of a preschool is important but, of course, our primary focus must be on what growth is taking place in the children.
The preschool serves to:
Promote health, physical growth and motor development.
Increase independence in meeting and solving problems.
Strengthen inner emotional controls.
Recognize reasonable limits and to influence growth toward self-discipline.
Encourage self-liking, self-confidence and self-understanding.
Foster security with adults.
