Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Greenwood we have a deep commitment to a quality preschool education and day care. We feel an outstanding preschool should provide a warm, loving atmosphere where a child can grow intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally. We want each class to be taught in a positive and non-threatening manner which allows for stimulation and growth. We feel children should be treated with respect so they will value the feelings and ideas of others.
Greenwood believes each day of a child’s life is full of curiosity and learning. Parents and teachers play an important role in responding to and supporting learning experiences. By working together, we can help our children develop into healthy, intelligent human beings. Our teachers are college graduates and experienced in early childhood. Our faculty consists of teachers, senior staff, and aides. Greenwood serves children from varied economic, social, and ethnic backgrounds.
Greenwood School’s physical facilities have sufficient floor space in nine classrooms to accommodate all of our children. Each room is divided into clearly defined learning centers with materials and equipment appropriate for that learning center and the age of the children.
Our faculty strongly believes that children learn through first hand experiences, structured and unstructured play activities, and involvement with their peers. The staff at Greenwood helps create an environment that is conducive to learning in this manner."
