Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Preschool espouses the philosophy that education and learning are a part of life rather than a preparation for it. The child learns through active participation with the environment and through real-life experiences with the world around them.
The Prechool provides a friendly, relaxed, and stimulating atmosphere as well as a secure environment in which children participate in a child-sized world. Play oriented activities are geared to challenge each child to develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually at his/her own pace. The aesthetic and moral values and the self-esteem of each child are also developed.
A basic objective of the Prechool is to provide socialization. However, cognitive learning, the acquisition of intellectual or "readiness" skills, is also of primary concern. Opportunities for a variety of meaningful activities are provided on a daily basis, to meet each child's needs, interests, and abilities."
