"Johnson Pond Learning Center believes:
that a quality early childhood education creates the foundation for future learning successes.
that learning to communicate with peers within a structured environment, and on a social level, is necessary for young children.
that respect for self, others, and the environment is something that is taught and earned. Learned at an early age, this provides children with the tools they need to be a contributing member of a larger community.
that young children learn through experience and hands-on activities.
that teachers at the preschool level should facilitate, not dictate.
that children should be guided toward positive decisions and choices, and self-esteem should flourish.
that children should be nurtured and made to feel special. They should be recognized as an individual, not only as part of a larger group.
that our school is an extension of the home. Parents, teachers, and administrators must work together to create a warm, comfortable, academic environment for all children in attendance.
that each lesson each day should benefit the childâ€™s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth.
that learning should be fun."
