Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Marywood-Palm Valley’s Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs offer a nurturing and progressive approach to ensure that children ages three to five have an opportunity to develop the skills necessary to reach their highest potential.

Using children’s natural curiosity as a foundation, our qualified staff provide many opportunities for children to explore the world around them. We provide a happy, safe, nurturing environment where we expose children to literature, music, physical activity, drama, art, and science, and begin readiness activities needed for reading and math skills.

The teachers use developmentally appropriate materials and equipment to encourage children to participate in activities that foster their independence, encourage appropriate social behavior, develop language skills, and help them learn to reason, question, and experiment. Teachers encourage children to work independently to develop their natural abilities, and in small groups so they can learn cooperation and the value of other children’s thoughts and feelings. "
