Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our Preschool services the needs of 3, 4 and 5 year old children, preparing them for the Kindergarten experience, showing them that learning can be fun and demonstrating how we can live in a group situation.
Young children must have first-hand experience in order to learn to grow. Our Preschool curriculum offers experiences in music, art, literature, natural and physical sciences and community life. This is done in an atmosphere of free expression. These concepts are blended into fun learning activities.
Under the patient guidance of the teacher, the Preschool child is helped to develop a positive self image, to be proud of his/her achievements and to be willing to accept new challenges with confidence. The child is encouraged to be aware of the relationship between freedom and responsibility, to be able to accept and observe the limits and boundaries of his freedom and develop an ability to respond to others in acceptable and positive ways.
