About Our Developmental Preschool Program:
We believe that competent adults had experiences in childhood which allowed them to develop good communication and problem-solving skills, creativity, and acceptable ways of resolving conflicts. At Pilgrim we provide ample opportunities in all four areas:
Learning to communicate with other children is an ongoing and difficult task. Through art, dramatic play, music, dance, literature, math, and science, children learn to express personal feelings and ideas.
Children are given many opportunities to make choices and follow through with their decisions. In so doing, children develop critical thinking and reasoning skills. They predict outcomes, classify, analyze, and evaluate consequences of their choices through a wide variety of experiences.
Children develop intellectual curiosity when involved in activities that challenge them to find alternative solutions. Many open-ended activities are offered to encourage curiosity and creativity.
Social effectiveness depends on an awareness and understanding of the needs of others. By encouraging children to find positive verbal solutions to conflicts, social problem-solving skills are developed.
