Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Early Childhood educators know that preschool children are concrete thinkers and need to touch, hear, see, smell taste and move in order to understand their Forty Carrots teachers create and recreate activities that encourage children to learn through exploration and discovery.

Monthly themes provide a framework for thesse activities and theme-related projects foster a desire to learn more. In addition to being hands-on, Forty Carrot's Preschool curriculum is developmentally appropriate. In other words, activities are geared to the overall developmental level of the children in the class as well as to individual children's gifts, challenges, temperaments and learning styles.
Encourage positive social interactions - sharing, communicating, cooperating, caring.
Enhance the children's self-esteem, self-sufficiency, and feelings of self-worth."
