Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Morrow Memorial Preschool is designed to help today's family meet certain growth needs by providing the child with regular association with other children his or her own age.
Early childhood is a period of phenomenal development: physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual. Children absorb their attitudes, impressions and habits of thinking and reacting from those around them. Parents and teachers alike must recognize that what they do has greater influence on the children with whom they associate than what they say.
Morrow Memorial Preschool presents a Christian orientation toward developing a positive self-image, social development within a peer group, positive interaction with other adults and learning experiences through play and play materials."
