Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Little Friends Preschool our philosophy provides a foundation that nurtures the child through all stages of development. By nourishing the mind and the senses through a healthy environment, imaginative play, artistic activity, language, song, puppetry, fairy tales and storytelling, our program fosters the development of the whole child, physically, emotionally, and intellectually.
At Little Friends Preschool, our program encourages education where children play at cooking, they dress up and become whomever they want to be; they sing, paint, and color. Through songs and poems they learn to enjoy language; they learn to play together, hear stories, do puppet shows, and build houses out of boxes, sheets, and boards. To become fully engaged in such work is the child's best preparation for life. It builds powers of concentration, interest, and a lifelong love of learning"
