Preschool Philosophy

Preschool Program Philosophy

Our work with the children is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to Early Childhood Education.  We utilize this approach to develop an “emergent curriculum.” An emergent curriculum is developed by observing each child individually as well as children’s work in groups and developing activities and classroom areas based on the explorations, interests and developmental needs of each child.

We encourage children’s problem solving and skill development through hands-on activities that help children explore art, science, math, literacy, social and emotional expression, creativity, messiness and fun.  We nurture children’s sense of wonder and hope to strengthen their self-esteem and feeling of belonging to a community.

Our goal is to help children grow and develop a love of learning, exploration and problem-solving and to feel safe and secure to experiment and appreciate people, nature and the world around them.
