Preschool Learning Environment
Each day, the children are offered multiple opportunities to explore, discover and grow. Our aim is to enrich children’s play through problem solving, communication and cooperation. Developmentally appropriate materials are throughout the intently organized classrooms, inviting the children to develop curiosity, self-esteem, self-direction, values, strength, and coordination. Material arrangement encourages students’ involvement and encourages them to learn while caring for their environment.
We welcome and encourage families to take part in their child’s journey through preschool. While there are no required time commitments, we offer various ways for parents to get involved. In addition to these opportunities, we formally communicate with each family at least three times a year for progress reports, reflection and ongoing assessments of each child’s development and learning.
