"St. Patrick Preschool, it is our goal to balance the needs of the individual with those of the group. Through an emergent curriculum that integrates fine and gross motor skills, phonics, hands-on science, number skills, sensory, and problem solving skills, we will provide every child in our care an opportunity to create and learn. We begin with a deep respect for children. We believe that security brings independence and we will strive to create a safe, secure, nurturing environment that promotes social, emotional and spiritual growth. By teaching key values such as respect for self, others and the environment we will develop in each child the ability to work cooperatively and to share leadership. We will consciously teach children to be kind and peaceful. We recognize that every child develops at his/her own pace and each child is a unique individual. We strive to instill a strong sense of self worth in each child and we recognize each as a valuable member of our community. We will maintain a professional standard in reaching our goals and strive for open communication with our families and community.
