"Happy Hearts Preschool is respectful of the individual. We are dedicated to building positive self-esteem and self-sufficiency in each child. The atmosphere of the school is open for "hands-on" discovery and exploration, but equally strives to instill order, direction, and responsible application for a positive learning experience. Play is a valuable learning process for the young child, therefore we incorporate academic learning into our playtime. Readiness to learn is determined by the developmental level of the child and the richness of the learning environment. This is why our "choice time" is such an important part of our routine. During this time each child is allowed opportunities to make decisions and solve inherent problems, which in turn creates positive self feelings. The main focus of our program is to teach children to make good choices and is designed to empower all students to eventually solve their own problems. We do not rescue them but work cooperatively to solve problems or conflicts. We value our parents as "the perfect complement" to help develop a program that continues to meet the needs of your children."
