Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The philosophy of Creative Discoveries Preschool is that children learn through play. We provide a safe and stimulating environment where children may develop capabilities in the areas of physical, intellectual, emotional and social growth. This is accomplished through a developmentally appropriate curriculum that emphasizes play and building positive self-esteem. We recognize that every child is an individual with his or her own special interests and needs. Our goal is to guide the child, offer interest, and fulfill needs through first-hand experiences. In this way, children are able to build strong foundations for future learning. We believe in an integrated parent-teacher-child approach to education. Giving parents the opportunity to work in the classroom results in a supportive, caring and nurturing atmosphere for our children's first school experience.
