Preschool uses the "Creative Curriculum" which emphasizes play as the tool for learning.
Play provides the foundation for academic or "school" learning.
It is the preparation children need before they learn highly abstract
symbols such as letters and numbers. Play is the work of young children.
Our goal is to help
children become enthusiastic, independent, self-confident, inquisitive
learners. We use an integrated program focusing on the following four
areas of development:
Social: to help children feel comfortable in school,
trust their new environment, make friends, and feel they are part of the
Emotional: to help children experience pride and self-confidence,
develop independence and self-control, and have a positive attitude toward
Cognitive: to help children become confident learners
by letting them try out their own ideas and experience success, and solve problems,
ask questions, and use words to describe their ideas, observations, and
Physical: to help children increase their large and small muscle
skills and learn what their bodies can do.
