Our preschool programs are designed to develop the whole child. Firstly we provide a positive and encouraging learning environment. In this space, children of various cultures and backgrounds share and learn about each other and the world around them. We believe children learn best through play, for example when they use all their senses to explore and experiment. Children understand the world around them with their sense of wonder and curiosity.
We believe that children are capable of constructing their own learning. This has led us to use some ideas of the Reggio Emilia philosophy. To begin with, this philosophy believes that children are capable and use many languages to express themselves. It sees the environment children interact with as being a third teacher.
We believe that each child is unique. Accordingly they learn, develop, interact, and play in individual ways. We thus strive to maximize each child’s learning potential. As caring, supportive teachers, we provide open-ended materials for the children to explore.
In addition we hope to inspire love and respect for nature and the environment. We go on local walks and outings. Children will learn about seasons, flowers, trees, bugs, and more.
