General School Mission

"At Prince of Peace Nursery School our program is designed to offer the young child an opportunity to interact with other children in a warm, caring and accepting environment that is conducive to the development of wholesome social relationships. Our goal is to help children learn to care about themselves and others. We provide appropriate experiences in emotional, social, physical, and cognitive development at each child’s age level. We encourage this development in a nurturing, relaxed and nonsexist environment with caring adults. Our curriculum is based on the Connecticut Framework Pre-school Curricular Goals and Benchmarks, and is in compliance with the National association for the education of Young Children as a nationally recognized, high quality early childhood program.
