"We believe that young children learn the foundations of trust, love, faith, hope, and forgiveness as they interact with caring adults and other children in a nurturing environment. We believe that children learn best with a low student/teacher ratio. We believe in the importance of encouraging growth of the whole child including the physical, emotional, spiritual, social, and cognitive development. We believe that development is a sequential interrelated process and that each child has an individual pattern and timing of growth, learning style, and family history. We believe that children need to be able to identify and communicate their feelings, needs, and desires in order to begin to function positively in society. We believe that children have important rights as human beings. We believe that children must learn respect for others and appreciation of differences. We believe children must learn problem solving skills rather than correct answers. We believe that it is the job of teachers to prepare the environment with a rich variety of opportunities for concrete “hands-on learning”. Our curriculum is based on the belief that “children's work is play”, and our daily program includes art, music, language, science, math, physical and community experiences. We believe that it is important to have families take an active part in the Preschool. We believe that learning is a life-long process."
