Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"FUMCN is a caring, stimulating and secure place for children to learn and grow. The school provides a play- based approach to learning. The children learn through constructive play, which helps their language, reasoning, math and science skills. Constructive play encourages creative problem -solving, which in turn helps the children develop self confidence, self esteem, a sense of their strengths and weaknesses, and a positive attitude towards learning. Experts from a broad range of backgrounds agree that constructive play:
Is safe, wholesome and non-violent
Stimulates children to develop skills and positive relationships
Inspires children to learn more about themselves and the world around them
Enables creativity and helps develop a child's personality
Makes learning fun "
Excerpted from the preschool's website
