Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led

From the Director:

Magnificent Me Preschool is a unique preschool that promotes curiosity, creativity, and confident independence. The home based setting provides an ideal bridge between home and school Although Magnificent Me still has the comfort of home, your child will still participate in daily learning experiences in a formal classroom setting. Preschool is intended to prepare your child socially and academically for what they will later encounter in school. Magnificent Me will provide your child with a variety of social and academic experiences that will support your child in developing these skills. The goal is to make learning fun and allow your child to interact with other like age children in both creative and educational play.
