"Mt. View Preschool philosophy is predicated on the belief that children
grow toward self-reliance and healthy independence
develop positive feelings of self-worth and inner-strength
learn to interact with others, respecting their rights and feelings
learn to solve problems and resolve conflicts by expressing their feelings in appropriate ways, and
grow toward physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual maturity....
in an atmosphere of free play, with emphasis on freedom with responsibility, and under the guidance of caring adults who help children learn to make decisions and accept consequences for their actions, as they explore and find joy in learning about the world around them
