"The most important thing in your lives is the well-being, both mental and physical, of your children. It is paramount that they, during their early formative years be in an environment that promotes their growth -- social, intellectual, physical and emotional! It is during these vital years that your child is the most energetic, creative, questioning -- and most important to all -- open to learning.
At YUMA PRESCHOOL, through group sharing of everyday experiences, your child will develop a willingness to talk, to have personal security in group situations, and the ability to listen, observe, and follow directions. Such activities as playing games, singing songs, listening to records, films, picture books and telling stories are utilized to develop language and listening abilities.
We also recognize the child as an individual, each with their own capabilities, limitations or special needs. Our curriculum as well as activities are based upon this important fact. We concentrate upon developing the individual potential of each child to promote a good self-image, independence, self-discipline and creativity. A child will do their best work only when they perceive the reason for it. The specific curriculum set-up for each day or week always has choices for the child to make in each area.
