Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The goal of Communities United, Inc. is to give preschool children and families an opportunity to experience growth by providing experiences that encourage participation and interaction in their environment.
We promote an anti-bias perspective that acknowledges and celebrates differences. We are committed to the concept that parents are the first and most important teachers of their children. We encourage and support parents to grow as their primary teacher by providing opportunities to become involved in many different ways. We strive to increase the ability of children and families to cope with and initiate change in their lives and build upon the gains made through their experiences.
