Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Tualatin Valley Preschool is founded on the philosophy of play, which emphasizes sensory learning and natural learning. Our program is child-centered, with the teachers gently guiding children to new understandings and connections.
Play encourages the child's natural desire to learn. They are provided experiences on a sensory level which gives them the most basic pleasures in physical activity and playing in various situations. Through their curiosity, inventiveness and spontaneous energy, they develop a lifetime of learning.
Through play, children can explore the world, find out how it works and find out about themselves and their capabilities. It is a way of allowing them to repeat and repeat until they master the skill required to carry out their purpose, giving them confidence.
