"The importance of the preschool years as stepping stones for later years should not be underestimated. During the preschool years, much is taking place in the developmental stages of the young child. A nursery school experience can play an important role in developing a young child socially, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Through a wide range of opportunities and experiences, plus guidance from loving teachers, a young child is encouraged to explore, investigate, think, learn, and grow. He or she will learn about himself or herself, others, the community, and the world around him or her. He or she will have the opportunity, fostered by means of a safe and healthful atmosphere, to see himself or herself as a person capable of loving and being loved. "
