Day in the Life

General School Mission

The philosophy of education of Sharing Tree Preschool has been refined over the years in order to provide the best learning opportunity for your preschooler. We have a developmentally based approach that focuses on skill development appropriate for each age group. We believe that a comprehensive preschool education should be age appropriate and based on solid child development principles. Our highly trained teachers direct each child according to their individual capabilities and maturity level. The rooms are designed not only to be warm and inviting but also to create a stimulating classroom environment.
Each month we send a calendar home that will inform you of our academic focus for the month. The weekly units or themes are used as a planning tool for the staff. The units provide variety as the skills are reinforced and taught throughout the year. This gives the teachers an opportunity to observe each child’s growth and progress as it relates to the curriculum. Special guests are invited in periodically to enhance the program.
Some learning units are reformatted and repeated yearly since all children learn through repetition. As children develop so do their cognitive abilities. Repetition provides new learning situations in proportion with their capabilities.
