"EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY: The philosophy of the preschool is based on these important considerations:
The program is developmental in nature focusing on the growth of the total child.
Each child matures and progresses at a different rate. Therefore, the program will be individualized as much as possible to meet the individual needs of the child.
The preschool child spends most of his waking moments involved in play. Therefore, play, an important aspect of his development, is used as a vehicle to teach basic concepts.
The young child is energetic, full of life, eager, and enthusiastic. He must be doing, exploring, and discovering the world around him.
If a sound program is provided for a child based on his abilities and needs, discipline problems are minimal and growth is maximal.
Excerpted from the preschool's website
Children are greeted individually by their teacher in the classroom as they enter each day before beginning a circle time with classmates. Interest centers follow circle time with hands-on discovery facilitated by teachers in small groups and individually. Snack time is shared by all in a family style setting. Outdoor playground time is planned for each day as well. A circle time around dismissal time concludes the preschool day.
