Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The policy of American Preschool is to allow children the opportunity and the environment to enrich their lives with a variety of educational experiences. It is American's policy to uphold the highest standards of teaching, therefore building a strong foundation encompassing academic, social, and physical experiences in the child's educational journey.
It is American's goals and purpose that the preschooler will develop an increased attention span, build their communicative skills, follow sequential direction, improve both gross and fine motor skills, express themselves musically and artistically while first and foremost experience the joy of learning in a fun, exciting, academic setting.
At out facility we provide our students with opportunities that will service their basic need for growth in personality, character and physical self worth. The results of learning are often spoken of as "knowledge and information, habits, skills performed, attitudes, ideals and standards of value". Such results will be our ultimate goal for each students.
