General School Mission

"The mission of the Peace Patch Preschool is to provide young children with the experience of motor, conceptual, and social development. We encourage development in an environment that invites cooperation, the making of choices, problem solving, and exploring boundaries. We seek to give the encouragement needed so that children have a sense of self-respect and a sense of accomplishment. We show acceptance, approval and interest in children's creative and learning activities.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Parents are active participants in the life of Peace Patch Preschool. Parents volunteer in the classrooms on a rotating basis.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Home visits by teachers
  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Parents in classroom early on
