Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The goal of Grant Preschool is to encourage children to maximize growth cognitively, emotionally, socially and physically. Our teaching staff is trained to meet the needs of the whole child in a loving and respectful manner. Each child is treated as an individual personality with utmost importance being placed on self-esteem and verbalization of one’s feelings. It is our goal to provide a safe, nurturing environment while offering a wide range of activities that foster social skills, problem solving and first and foremost, having fun while learning and growing.
