Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Newport Coast Child Development Preschool focuses on the whole child…socially, cognitively, emotionally and physically. Each child is born with potential. We know that the Preschool years are the most critical time in a child’s development. During this time children, based on their environment and experiences, will learn trust, self expression and self worth. We, therefore, as an extension of the family, provide them with a warm, caring, safe and secure environment in which to explore and discover those things around them and within themselves. In this environment , we offer the opportunities for children to make choices that will enhance their naturally emerging skills. We encourage independent thinking, curiosity, exploration and discovery through developmentally appropriate curriculum, materials, and methods. It is through movement and discovery, rather than a mobile state, that children grasp and learn about the world around them.

Newport Coast Child Development Preschool is unique because we expose children to the academic world in a nurturing , safe and secure environment that is catered to each individual child. In our classrooms the children get a balance of a structured learning environment as well as time to learn through their own self-initiated discovery. Children are surrounded by things around them from which to learn. Our belief is that children don’t need to be forced to learn. They want to learn and they will. We provide those opportunities for them and then they enhance them with their imagination, innocence, and eagerness to learn and explore the world around them.
