"Our classroom philosophy is to work closely with parents to develop independence, responsibility, and accountability through five basic principles (developed from the biblical character traits of the fruit of the Spirit as defined in Galatians 5:22):
* We have walking feet.
* We have listening ears.
* We have quiet voices.
* We have gentle hands.
* We have kind words.
Every MPCS preschool student enjoys the opportunity to learn how to independently succeed in the classroom. This skill encompasses the development of listening skills, task orientation, the ability to follow direction, Christian standards of behavior, and self-sufficiency in the child.
Classroom routines, consistently applied standards of behavior, and the use of classroom centers facilitate the development of these skills. Classroom centers are used on a small group rotational basis to enable teacher-student focus in structured academic centers. Our preschool classes consist generally of fifteen students and two adults (one certified teacher and one paraprofessional), making structured centers an ideal medium to engage and develop individual needs. It also enables social skills development as the small groups rotate in the classroom and adapt to the requirements of each assigned center. Using these methods and communicating daily with parents on overall student performance, MPCS works to build confidence, independence, and a positive school experience in preschool students."
