Parents set the foundation for a child’s life long health and learning. Supportive, caring, consistent relationships between child and parent are key to healthy development (intellectually, socially, and physically).
Preschool supports the work the parents do, striving to develop a strong and resilient learner identity. Our preschool values play as an essential medium through which children participate with others in an active learning process. Our teachers create “invitations to play” by providing diverse materials for exploration and representation which encourage making choices, problem solving, asking questions, expressing ideas, imagination and creativity. It is our privilege to work with families in the care and education of their children.
Our classes (maximum of 12) are mixed ages, threes and fours. Age mixing allows younger children to engage in and learn from activities that they could not do alone or with playmates of the same age. Mixed-age play provides the older participants practice in nurturing and leading opportunities to learn through teaching and inspiration for creative and imaginative activities. Children need to be three by December 31, 2023, to register for 2023-2024.
The classes are designed to learn and socialize in small groups and to introduce the enjoyment of art, stories, music, movement and drama.
