Nursery and Pre-K Philosophy

The Nursery and Pre-K Programs are designed to contribute to all aspects of your child's development. It has been developed to fit and meet three and four-year-old's abilities, developmental levels, learning styles, and interests. The teachers recognize three very important tenets of early childhood education:

  • Children grow and develop at unique individual rates that are often unrelated to chronological age.
  • Children learn best through doing, through direct, immediate involvement with the environment, and through the sensory input of observation, manipulation, and experimentation.
  • Three and four-year-old children are experiencing rapid and important growth in many developmental areas, including the cognitive/intellectual, psychosocial, and physical-motor domains.

Kindergarten Philosophy

Kindergarten is an exciting entry into a child's formal education and it is our mission to make it a positive beginning. The Kindergarten Program is designed to enhance your child's development in a challenging, secure and nurturing environment. We believe that young children learn through active, purposeful interactions with a wide variety of learning materials and activities which enhance the growth of the whole child.
