Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Havenwood Preschool Center is a licensed non-profit and non-sectarian facility which offers toddler, pre-nursery, nursery, kindergarten, and pre-first programs. The kindergarten and pre-first programs are approved by the Maryland State Board of Education. Havenwood also provides full time, early bird, half day, and late afternoon child-care. The various programs are designed to meet the needs of children between the ages of two and six years old. Havenwood is in session nine months of the year from September through May. The philosophy of Havenwood emphasizes the uniqueness of the individual and the development of each child by providing an atmosphere in which mutual respect, support, a gentleness of the spirit, and genuine nurturing can flourish. Exposure to a multi-sensory and multi-disciplinary teaching approach allows children to develop a solid foundation upon which further learning can be built. Our goal is to create a child-oriented program geared to increasing the child's awareness, encouraging a positive self-concept, and instilling a love of learning through the child's own creations, imagination, and thoughts. Equal importance is given to social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. This is accomplished in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where each member of the staff has a true love for children and the desire to open the world of knowledge to them."
