Pre Kindergarten Philosophy

We believe that children learn best....

• by exploring concepts through hands-on activities
• through long blocks of uninterrupted play
• with opportunities to explore both outdoors and indoors
• with a caring, respectful relationship with peers and adults
• in an atmosphere which celebrates the joys of everyday life


• To provide an environment which promotes active exploration and interaction with adults, other children and materials with the teacher as a facilitator.
• To provide learning activities and materials that are concrete, real and meaningful to the lives of young children.
• To foster self-esteem through relationships with adults who express acceptance and respect for all children.
• To recognize that all children are different and to allow such differences to surface in daily activities.
• To allow outlets for the expression of each child's individual creative potential.
• To create an environment that allows children to utilize problem-solving techniques with peers and adults in social situations with guidance and supervision as needed.
