Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Wedgwood Preschool combines the best of the Montessori philosophy with current child development concepts and education practices
Our program is designed to nurture and develop the whole child. The warm, loving, and playful atmosphere and stimulating environment address the cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and creative needs of each individual child. The environment fosters in children self-esteem, responsibility, respect, cooperation, and most of all, a love for learning.

We believe that children benefit from everyday role models. We hire only the best teachers who are befitting of, and comfortable with, that role.
