Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

" Preschool Philosophy:

At MSP, we believe that children learn in a variety of different ways, and that learning should be fun! Keeping with these two tenets, the teachers of each age group teach using “thematics,� which means that we follow a unit theme, and completely immerse children with the “concept of focus.� From colors and shapes, to rain forests and holidays, you will find the children learning through related art projects, songs, finger plays, rhymes, work sheets, videos, stories, etc., etc., etc.


Even snack time is used as an opportunity for learning as we serve theme-related snacks. Most importantly, the children are having a great time and developing the attitude that learning is fun! We also change activities frequently throughout the school day, thereby keeping the children interested and motivated.

Main Street Preschool is a Christian early childhood educational program; however, we also include secular aspects of holiday celebrations such as Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny in our lesson plans. While we strive to teach the children the true meaning of these Christian holy days, we also use the merriment of seasonal symbols and cultural traditions to enhance the learning process.
