Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"As a state licensed facility, St. Regis Earl Childhood Program is devoted to the development of the whole child; physically, socially, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually. Our philosophy is based on the child development theories of Jean Plaget, Erik Erikson, and Maria Montessori. We base our spiritual philosophy on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
We meet your child's needs by:
Providing a dedicated staff trained and knowledgeable in child development Providing vertically aged classes, which allow for a more pleasant social structure and the same caregiver during the preschool years
Providing a safe and healthy environment with proper and adequate nutrition
Providing regular observation and assessment to help plan for your child needs

Staff facilitating and modeling language and communication skills
