It is our feeling that children's emotional growth and development is strengthened when they are exposed to a stimulating environment and given the opportunity to learn through play. Academic skills are gradually integrated into our program as the developing child begins to feel comfortable with who he is as an individual as well as in relationship to others.
From birth, children are active learners. They accumulate various experiences and integrate them into what becomes their own experiential understanding of themselves to the rest of the world. Each opportunity of hands-on understanding challenges them to formulate their own realizations and reinforces, not only each child's sense of autonomy, but a sense of achievement as well. Our program is designed to implement individual and group activities that enrich physical, cognitive, social and emotional growth. These include well-equipped outdoor areas as well as a wide variety of learning materials that playfully introduce science, literature, math and music. There is also creative art and dramatic play throughout the day.
Each child is unique and has very individual needs. Our staff seeks to provide a safe and nurturing environment. Children are empowered to use their words to express themselves about their joys and frustrations as well as interpersonal relationships. This is achieved through positive guidance and an emphasis on self-discipline.
Families are important. We encourage parent involvement and believe that working together as a team creates a consistent environment where children thrive at home as well as at school. Monthly meetings and scheduled events will allow parents to actively participate in their child's preschool experience.
Our school truly feels that the years spent at preschool enables children of every culture, race and ethnical background to build their blocks.
