General School Mission

"Preschool Goals
Recognizing that the preschool experience is an important first step into the world beyond the family, we strive to be: accepting of the child as a unique individual, aware of individual emotional and educational needs, loving and supportive.
Within this context, it is our goal to provide: challenging new experiences, expanding relationships with adults and other children and rich varieties of activities leading to mastery of appropriate skills and overall school readiness.
As more is known about the importance of the early years in terms of personality development, values and moral development, cognitive development and social interaction, the work of the preschool becomes more universally recognized as an important step in the educational process.
At the Tatnall Preschool, it is our aim to provide the environment for optimal growth within a developmentally appropriate framework. We are committed to allowing each child the privilege to learn at his/her own level and to experience success as mastery advances. We believe that children are natural learners, driven by an inner force to advance on their own schedule toward adulthood and higher learning. It is our job to create the finest environment in which that can happen.
